Can You Pass This Expert Baking Quiz Without Burning Down The Kitchen?

Let Our Expert Quiz Confirm It For You

Baking is the kind of hobby that most people have tried at least once. Whether they were forced to participate in a bake sale at work or at school, or just spent a Saturday afternoon with some boxed cake mix, trying to make Thomas the Tank Engine or Frozen cupcakes complete with rice paper decorations and edible ball bearings. With that said, now that The Great British Bake Off has been required viewing for a number of years, it's fair to say that the popularity of the hobby has only increased.

It seems like these days in particular, you can't check Instagram without getting updates on at least five different sourdough starters, along with seeing the culinary creations of friends you didn't even know owned a whisk. More people than ever are spending their afternoons whipping up meringues and creating towers of dainty macarons or, if they're trying to be more down to Earth about it, tirelessly slaving over the perfect seeded loaf.

Baking is a pretty harmless hobby, except for when it causes the occasional flour shortage in the supermarket or arguments over who is going to wash up the bowl of the stand mixer - but there is a dark side too. The truth is, everybody thinks they have what it takes to be an expert baker - even you!

So with that said, if you want to prove that you're by far the most supreme pastry chef of your friend group, then this quiz will let you find out! Avoid these simple baking blunders and prove once and for all that your cakes and buns cannot be beat!

About Eighties Kids

Founded in 2016, Eighties Kids started small. Beginning as a blog posting on 80s and 90s life as well as the movies, music and television of the era, Eighties Kids has in a short space of time exploded in scope and ambition. Operating out of Eighties Kids HQ in sunny Ilkley, in the North of England, today a growing team of writers produces original content day in and day out for one of the best new nostalgia sites on the web.

With the site also growing beyond its original remit, the Eighties Kids team now covers not just trivia from the 80s and 90s, but pop culture of all decades that’s of interest to children of the 80s, 90s and beyond. From shocking and obscure fact posts on your favourite movies and bands, to quizzes on classic TV shows and film franchises, to picture galleries on celebrities from past and present, Eighties Kids is here to take you down memory lane, test your knowledge of classic pop culture and maybe even occasionally blow your mind.
