    Brendan's reaction when they shot down his gingerbread house last week was priceless.

    I like Brendan. He's a real pro. Either him or the young lad with glasses and I'll be happy. I think John is now well out of his league. Plus he is annoying because he acts like he read a 'How to be Camp' book.

    I keep telling my missus to apply for this show as I think she can do 'a good bake'.

    Here's the cake she made for our daughter's birthday.

    She also does a mean pistachio macaroon, but they're only for me so keep your hands off.

    But was it a good bake, were her flavours good and did it have a soggy bottom?

    Don't be talking about my missus in that way.

    :)

    Mine too. She tried some other types, but they seemed to work best.

    I love it when she does a batch. I just need to go out running a bit more after having a few.


    On topic, I want James to win. He's more expermental and I love his massive failure/huge success with no apparent middle ground style.

    I fucking hate Brendan. He's a nazi war criminal in hiding, I swear.

    OMG! Gutted for James although he did go against the remit of the final. Glad Brendan didn't win though.

    Bit too overconfident there from James. Should have stuck to the task.

    I had it recorded but the fucking Guardian, right bang in the middle of the front page ruined it with a caption headline of "Surprise Winner"


    Cunts!!

    It's only the most delicious Challenge in EG HISTORY!!!!

    Have a look on a few pages back - we're gonna build gingerbread structures, take photos and see who "wins".

    Seeing as Xmas is coming, the main aim is too simply enjoy ginger goodness and spend quality time with friends and family around a shared activity.

    I've got a REALLY good idea for my gingerbread structure however it could be a bit too tricky to pull off.

    I'll give it a right good go though!

    Haha no. I don't think it would stand up to much abuse.

    My idea is more game-related...

    I'm so down for that shit. No sponging pictures of gingerbread houses from all the websites out there either, have to put a tag with your username on it somewhere.

    hehe, I'm struggling with ideas at the moment. Have a few but I'm worried they may be a bit too ambitious.

    I was originally thinking of famous landmarks etc. to reconstruct but then had a brainwave.

    The main trick to my idea is creating a perfectly spherical gingerbread structure to then adhorn with decorations.

    Also, I'm nominating sport to create the new thread with guidelines etc. for the "competition".

    Perhaps we can get Venatio to put up some prizes for the best efforts :)

    Oh I've got a good one I think. Do we have a deadline for entry or just post up as and when before Xmas?
