Bake Off Bake Along Week 9 Roundup & Week 10 | The Final

I can't believe the bake off is over for another year. I wait all year for it to come on and it goes within the blink of an eye! But who else was super happy for Nadiyah? Don't get me wrong, I loved Tamal but I was rooting for Nadiyah - those iced buns man. Although I do recall Shay saying he wished it wasn't so obvious Nadiyah was going to win, to inject a bit of excitement but I guess you can't have it all.

Before I get onto last weeks delicious looking favourites - chocolate was always going to be a great week wasn't it? - I'll briefly explain how the final week is going to work. You know the drill by now, so just carry on as usual. Amanda and I won't have a bake for you as we'll have already done ours but we WILL be announcing the winner and runner up of the Bake Off Bake Along 2015.

We've both been so overwhelmed with how great the last 10 weeks have been and how much fun it is as well as how many new blogs we've come across because of this thing. It's been stressful at times and I've certainly had my share of baking fails but I'm *so* glad we've all done this together! Pat on the back for everyone - huzzah!

So our favourites from Chocolate week are Angela for her sublime chocolate & mango tart... what a combo and just LOOK at the sheen on that bad boy! And Hannah for her brilliantly risen chocolate souffl├ęs! Congrats ladies, just one more week to go.

As always the link up is at the bottom of this post for our final week!
Ok, now I have a little confession to make. I've totally and utterly failed by not having time to bake this week. I hate giving excuses but I hope you can forgive me, as I am two weeks away from leaving the country and I moved house yesterday... stress overload.

HOWEVER, I still very much plan on doing the final bake which I'll hopefully have time for on Wednesday to post up on Thursday, so although it'll be a little late I'm hoping that with my biggest and most sad puppy dog eyes you'll find it in your hearts to forgive me.

Anyway, enough feeling sorry for myself, Amanda will be announcing the winner next week so make sure you keep your eyes peeled to find out whether or not you've won the Bake Off Bake Along 2015!
