All cakes sound the same.

Does this sweeping generalisation include cattle cake?

Hi, welcome. A Bake off is similar in many ways to a smaller version of Scalford. Someone will offer to hold a get together in his/her house. The guests will arrive on the due date with pieces of Hi

I think they generally tend to sound different going in to coming out! :geek::testy1: Also great variance from person to person for sure.
There are special cakes for special people

Bake off = event at someone's house where overweight individuals attempt to slowly kill themselves with cakes and biscuits whilst music plays in the background. Some people even bring their own hifi as a distraction from the eat- fest.

People who bring cables are ritually burnt outside :^

They are called bake offs because of the American company Pillsbury who made dough. To promote their product they started a competition in 1947 to highlight innovative ways to use the product. This became known as a 'bake off' and is still held today with the winner winning a million dollars.

The term came to be used for any competition where you started with the same or similar products (in our case turntables, amplifiers and speakers) and in different combinations achieved totally different results :geek:

There is more than just the name they have in common, at both you get to meet an enormously fat man with appalling taste in carpets

Serge wouldn't eat cake, way too subjective.

Don't be too sure!

I do like a nice piece of carrot cake and cheesecake and St Honoré and the French religeuse are rather nice. Oh, and not forgetting a kugelhopf, and.....

They not only taste different, but measurably so.

Pass the cream......

You'd fit right in Serge. While we might not all be audio measurebaters, we certainly do in depth technical reviews on cake.:D Double and triple tests even.:^
