Our Favourite Baking Buns, Sorry, Puns!

Remember "forking"? "Ganaching"? We've chosen our favourite quips from previous episodes to make you giggle!


Our 10 Favourite Baking Puns & Innuendos From The Show

As if the promise of an hour long episode spent salivating over pies and pastries wasn’t enough to lure us in, it’s no secret that each series of the infamous baking show gets funnier by the episode! With the presenters throwing the odd pun (or five!) into the mix, along with a dusting of a few innuendos, it makes for perfect Wednesday night viewing, doesn’t it?

We asked around our office and created our top 10 favourite puns and innuendos from previous series as a little reminder of what’s in store for series six!

  • 1

    “It’s all in the wrist action”

    A corker from the cooking queen in reference to whisking, and whisking only!

  • 2

    “You’ve got two hours to pop Mary’s cherry…in the oven and bring it out again”

    A perfectly timed pause between instructions had us doubled over (and wishing we weren’t watching with our parents!

  • 3

    “Time to stop fiddling with Charlotte now”

    In the midst of a tricky technical challenge making a Charlotte Royale in series four, this quip helped to lighten the mood!

  • 4

    “I hope Granny Smith doesn’t have a soggy bottom”

    Don’t we all!

  • 5

    “Some of them have got a good forking”

    A compliment for some of the biscuits in series five’s Technical Challenge.

  • 6

    “Okay bakers that’s five minutes, or if you want a spelt version, F-I-V-E M-I-N-U-T-E-S”

    Sarcasm is always a winner, isn't it? (Even in the quarter finals!)

  • 7

    “Stop touching your dough balls”

    It had to be said, didn’t it? Another cracker from week three’s Showstopper Challenge.

  • 8

    “Keep an eye on your jugs”

    One of many pearls of wisdom!

  • 9

    “I’m ganaching my buns”

    It was a case of too much information from one contestant in series five!

  • 10

    “In the words of my Dad, not too thick and not too wet”

    Some brilliant father-son builder advice in series five that got us giggling.
