#BINGATE is back but with less controversy and more cake!
Do you remember Bake Off star Iain Watters who was part of that 'Bin Gate' madness in 2014 after he chucked his Baked Alaska in the bin? Well, he only went and chose Baked Alaska as for his wedding cake! What a legend, he deserves star baker!
The disaster occurred when fellow baker, Diana, took Iain's cake out of the freezer, people were debating was she or wasn't she to blame. #BinGate started as silly hashtag but it escalated very quickly and current Bake Off presenter, Sue Perkins was forced to speak out and stop viewers from trolling Diana Beard. Either way the incident, found it's way back into Iains wedding on Friday 9th September. This image really proves that he now sees the funny side! Phew!
Besides the main cake attraction, Iain's wedding day was made extra special by Bake Off finalist Richard Burr and Cheta Makan, they were in charge of organising and creating the “dessert table” with no less than 14 cakes to feast on!
Richard said "I arrived a little bit early along with Chetna, as we had both made three cakes each for the heaving cake table (mine are on the left of the picture above, Chetna’s are on the right). I think there were 14 wedding cakes in total. I always get a bit nervous transporting cakes in cabs, but I took along my emergency cake repair kit (spare buttercream in piping bags and offset palette knife) and they were fine. Chetna took her three cakes on the train from Broadstairs with her overnight bag too so deserves a medal for that!"
