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.
