Great British Baking Show Bake-Along

The other day I was watching the New Great British Baking Show on Netflix and I had this FLASH of brilliance. I wanted to bake-along with them and I didn’t want to do it alone. Or on Camera. Or in a tent. I’d absolutely go to Brittain to be in it though. Although I have a feeling I might just max out in the tent. I don’t know HOW the contestants do it! But they do and now WE CAN TOO. Welcome to the Great British Baking Show Bake-Along!

Great British Baking Show Bake-Along Details

I’ll be sharing about the Great British Baking Show Bake-Along here on Little House Big Alaska BUT we’ll be participating together in a Facebook Group. In fact, you can JOIN THE GROUP NOW so you’re all fired up for the Great British Baking Show Bake-Along when it starts. We will be following the schedule of the “New” Great British Baking Show on Netflix. You don’t even have to watch the show to be able to join in the Great British Baking Show Bake-Along, all you need is a desire to bake and try new things.

Great British Baking Show Bake-Along Start Date

The Great British Baking Show Bake-Along STARTS on October 6th when we announce the “First Bake” in the Facebook Group. You will then have 1 week to bake your entry, share a photo and written description of your bake for the week by Sunday at 12 Noon Eastern Standard Time. Your entry doesn’t have to be exactly what was chosen as the first bake, it can be inspired by the bake. Or a low carb version. Or allergy-friendly version. The choice is up to you.

Weekly “Star(bucks) Baker”

Each week we will choose one random winner to receive a 10 dollar Starbucks Gift Card for being our “Star(bucks) Baker”. The weekly “Star(bucks) Baker” will be chosen randomly from ALL entries received by 12 Noon, Eastern Standard Time. Anyone living outside the United States will receive a 10 dollar PayPal payment instead of a Starbucks Card because gift cards purchased in the United States do not work in all countries, I found that out by accident a few years ago. Oops!

The new Weekly Bake will be announced by 6 PM Eastern Standard Time on Sundays. Again entrants will have until the FOLLOWING Sunday to bake their entry. We will continue until we hit Week 10. Each week will have one Weekly Bake inspired by a bake or theme of the week on the NEW Great British Baking Show on Netflix.

The Great British Bake Along Grand Prize Winner

We will have a Grand Prize Winner at the end who will receive their very own Great British Baking Show inspired prize. We don’t know exactly how that will work but we think it will be a rafflecopter widget on the Facebook group for all participants. Everyone who participates will have a chance to enter, even if you only bake for one week, you could still be entered to win the Grand Prize.

This is just a fun event. There’s NO pressure to get your bakes turned in on time. The only thing a ‘late bake’ will get you is you won’t be entered to that week’s “Star(bucks) Baker” award. Other than that we’re here to learn, enjoy each others company, try new things, and have fun!

Would you do me a favor and SHARE this with your friends who bake? Or add them to the Facebook group. Share it with anyone who loves to bake. I’d LOVE to get a nice big group of inspiring bakers all in one group. Wouldn’t that be fun?!
