Great British Bake: Technical Challenge

Mary: So, what have we set the bakers today?

Paul: Well, to challenge their ability to conceptualize infinity, I’ve decided to ask them to bake a Paradoxical Cheshire Loaf.

Mary: Ah, yes. I can see here how it swirls in and out of existence, wonderfully sharp. It’s got that fine crisp, combining the flavors of the Heat Death of the Universe, and the subtle Birth of a Star.

Paul: Exactly. It’s difficult to get just right, to be sure.

Mary: Have you given the bakers any instructions?

Paul: None at all.

Mary: Oh, that’s wicked.

so watching the great british baking show as an american is super interesting. because to me, this is pudding

like in america our pudding is in plastic cups ^^^

not like this lovely thing you call a pudding. this is goddamn beautiful

or to me, a muffin is like these delicious misshapen lumps

not these perfect fluffy pillows

another thing. im so confused about biscuits

this is an american biscuit

but a british biscuit is like a nice cookie? or a cracker? look at these dainty lil things. so. different.

okay lastly theres a big ol’ jelly mixup 

this is jelly in america:

but this is jelly in the uk

bruh id call that JELL-O

it BAFFLES me that these things are so different but have the same exact name
