Reader Mary-Anne Boerman amazed and deeply flattered me with this email:
I love your website…your clear instructions, tips and hints have allowed me to attempt things I would never have dreamed of trying beforehand. Earlier this year I entered a TV Baking competition over here in the UK, and was lucky enough to get selected from the many thousands that applied. It’s currently being broadcast on British television…the semi-final is tomorrow night, and I’m still in there! I don’t think I would have got as far as I did if it weren’t for your website.
Well she did it, and has now advanced to the finals of The Great British Bake Off along with two other contestants. Mary-Anne, there is no question that all credit goes to you! You’ve done an amazing job and I can’t wait to see how it all turns out. Everyone who wants to watch the climactic final episodes can view them on this site (never mind some of the salacious popup ads).
