THE GREAT BRITISH BAKING SHOW: Cakes

 

Follow the trials and tribulations of passionate amateur bakers. Each week, they are tested for a different skill, the difficulty of which increases as the competition unfolds. Mary Berry, a leading cookbook writer, and Paul Hollywood, a top artisan baker, serve as judges. Together with hosts Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc, they search for the U.K.’s best amateur baker. In the first challenge, the 12 bakers tackle an upside down cake for the Signature bake. In the Technical, they undertake Paul’s recipe for rum babas. For the Showstopper, they attempt to produce a cake that
reveals a hidden design when sliced.
