Bake-Along-a-Sound Track

The soundtrack of the massively popular Great British Bake Off produced by Love Productions will soon be available on itunes and other sites to bake along to. The 20 tracks, composed by Tom Howe, feature such mouth-watering titles as Happy Pizza, Signature Cakes, Bakewell Country and Organic Mix. Since the programme was launched on BBC2 in 2010 it has scored tremendous ratings – reaching over 5 million viewers, consistently amongst the channel’s top rated programmes. This album is just the latest spin-off of the series.  On air the show has already spawned a Junior Bake Off for CBBC, a Sport Relief Bake Off (again a top-rated BBC2 show). There was even a Royal Wedding Cake special.  There have also been two baking books based on the series, with the latest one becoming one of the best-selling cookery books of 2011, consistently in the non-fiction top ten lists.
