In making their critiques, Prue admitted that she and Paul often come at things from their own unique perspectives.
“Paul is such a good baker,” she said. “He is really concerned about the technique—how light the cake is, how well whipped the icing is—he’s very hot on the technique. I’m rather a tastebuds judge. If it tastes fantastic, I’m happy.”
Despite their differences, however, Prue said she and Paul have “never come to blows yet” and their judging is always in sync.
“When we come to putting a number down, we are never, ever more than one mark away from each other, always in the same order,” she said. “We don’t confer about the numbers. We do them separately and then we look at them.”
