The Great British Bake Off – Modernising the Baking World

It is a show that has sparked a number of copycats around the world, not to mention other reality contest shows in the UK. However, due to its simple premise, funny hosts, great judges and the odd sexual innuendo, it is now one of the most popular TV shows on UK television. In the four years that it has been on the air, what is so appealing about The Great British Bake Off? Before the programme began airing, baking was considered an old-fashioned hobby that was more commonly shared and perfected by older generations of women. From personal experience, baking was a part of ‘food economics’ lessons in school, and even then, the dishes were relatively simple, due to the constrained lesson times. There was simply not enough times to create Victoria Sandwiches and cupcakes, so relatively simple dishes such as scones, bread rolls and apple crumble were covered.
