Long 6 hour video shoot with Emily, Sam and Doug from the BBC social media team – for these few minutes of footage.
We were dicing with disasters with too much filling welding the tarts to their tins, an upside-down cake that didn’t want to show its face and, most extreme of all, Emily’s iced carrot cake that managed to combine 900 grams (nearly 2lb) of sugar with one of your five-a-day fruit and veg. I’m not convinced that some of the token carrot could justify the sugar overload – delicious as it was! I could virtually feel the diabetes rush on the way.
The Beeb is trialling a more informal approach to features using social media – so you will probably see more of the animated eggs than me cooking. But it is fascinating to see how traditional media is changing as more people get their information and entertainment via social media: more fun, less polished and more immediate.
