THE GREAT BRITISH BAKING SHOW
Season 5 Masterclass 1

THE GREAT BRITISH BAKING SHOW: Season 5 Masterclass 1

 

After ten weeks of baking mayhem, calm finally descends on the Baking Show tent. Mary and Paul take up the reins to make the signature, technical and showstopper challenges that they set the bakers in the first couple of weeks of the series, and show us what they would have done had the roles been reversed in the tent.

 

Paul makes a blackcurrant and liquorice swirly swiss roll, whilst Mary takes us through the very first technical of the series – her perfect cherry cake with lemon icing. Paul demonstrates how to make two types of savoury biscuits, and Mary shows us the correct way to make florentines, before finishing with her show-stopping miniature classic coffee and walnut cakes.

More! Ledward Kaapana and Family

 

Ledward Kaapana remembers his Uncle Fred Punahoa playing the song “Radio Hula” in Kalapana: “In the morning, like one, two o’clock in the morning. In Kalapana, it’s so quiet, so… you know, and it’s dark, and so, he used to just sit outside on the porch, and play his guitar. I don’t know if you ever experienced sleeping…and hear one guitar just playing sweet music that just wake you up and like, ‘Oh, so sweet,’” Kaapana remembers. “Radio Hula” is one of the songs that Ledward Kaapana, along with his sisters Lehua Nash, Rhoda Kekona, and Lei Aken play in his Kaneohe garage on a rainy evening. They also share an energetic slack key performance of “Kuu Ipo Onaona,” and Ledward honors the late Dennis Kamakahi with “Kokee.”
