Witty, informative reality competition
4 May 2015 | by (Madison, WI) – See all my reviews

This show is a great reality show that keeps it interesting without manufactured drama. You end up caring for all of the bakers and want them all to do well. Mel and Sue make the show with their witty humor as the hosts. There is are also baking tips in the narration. For example, I now understand why bread needs to be kneaded and that gluten-free bread shouldn't be kneaded. There are also sidebars with baking history.

One disappointment was in season three. There was a challenge to make an "American pie", even though one of the judges professed to hating American style pies. There were British fruit pies in another episode though that seemed pretty similar to American fruit pies.
