Very fun and amusing show
26 November 2017 | by sonalliasbalSee all my reviews

My daughters (15 and 17) and I all loved watching this show together. The contestants were a range of personalities and we enjoyed the little explanations they filmed that showed what each of them were thinking at the time. And we laughed a lot! Ignore the USA slams... I'd say this is a thoroughly Aussie show and USA viewers just don't get it, esp the humour (no offence, it's just that there's a big cultural difference). I wouldn't let those reviews put anyone off who would enjoy bingeing on a fun baking program with plenty of nail biting tension and good character development. Also, while we do a lot of baking at home, we are really amateurs and so learned about tempering (?) chocolate, choux pastry, and so much more. What these bakers had to do sometimes was frankly incredible! We had several favourite contestants and a couple not so favourite (you know who you are!) We are so sad to see there wasn't another season. Please bring back the dessert factory Zumbo and Rachel!! Remember, as Gigi says....your taaaime staaaarts naaaaaaow!
