My cake was pastor joke, says Rev Lee
PASTOR Lee Banfield had no complaints about being booted off the Great British Bake Off first, admitting one of his cakes was laughable.
Lee, 67, said he struggled to keep a straight face as Paul Hollywood laid into his attempt at a Jaffa cake in last night’s series opener.
He said: “I won’t show the congregation at church how to make a Jaffa cake – I’ll buy them a pack instead.”
He added: “My worst moment was when Paul held up my cake and said, ‘That isn’t a Jaffa cake.’”
At the end of last night’s show, judge Paul said: “I’ve just been saying to Lee, ‘You are one of the 12 best amateur bakers in the country. You should be very proud of yourself.’”
Lee, from Bolton, Lancs, began baking in his 30s and now gives demonstrations regularly at his church.
