Baking Up A Storm – The Characters Who’d Take The Cake!
It’s the ultimate kitchen competition, the nail-biting show that puts the ‘ooof’ in soufflé – The Great British Bake Off is back for its tenth series, and things are already heating up!
Airing Tuesdays at 8pm on Channel 4, Virgin TV 111, there’s plenty of baking ahead of the contestants at this point – but we couldn’t help wondering what some of our favourite film characters would fancy plated up in front of them.
As seen in the latest issue of PLAY Magazine, we’ve had a go at coupling them with the cakes they’d crave – and next time you watch these movies, you know what to snack on too!
JOHN RAMBO – RED VELVET CAKE
Rambo: First Blood, available to rent now on Virgin Movies from €2.99
He doesn’t strike us as the type to wolf down forkfuls of the stuff – but if this military man gets peckish, we know the colour he’s going to be looking for!
MIRANDA PRIESTLY – VICTORIA SPONGE
The Devil Wears Prada, available to rent now on Virgin Movies from €2.99
Style never sleeps, so only something fashion forward would do here – and the timeless creation named after a former Queen is as classy as it gets!
ALEX ELLIOT – CHOCOLATE FUDGE CAKE
The Kid Who Would Be King, available to rent now on Virgin Movies from €4.99
The central character of the brand-new family favourite is as sweet as they come; so sweet, in fact, that only great platefuls of gooey goodness could match!
JOHN WICK – ROCKY ROAD
John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, available to rent now on Virgin Movies from €4.99
A smooth path just isn’t the way the hitman operates – so we reckon he’s the type to scoff down loads of this lumpy, biscuity, marshmallow-y treat!
ANNIE WALKER – WEDDING CAKE
Bridesmaids, available to rent now on Virgin Movies from €2.99
Being a baker herself, we can’t imagine it would be easy to impress Annie – but if we could give her tiers without the tears, we reckon we’d be onto a winner!
