Last night was Cake Week which saw the group take on a British classic; Lemon Drizzle. They were also faced with Mary Berry’s tricky technical challenge to make Jaffa Cakes, before displaying the best of their baking skills with the Mirror Glaze Showstopper.
Undercooked sponge cake, drizzle that didn’t drizzle and a mirror glazes that needed a polish, here’s a quick rundown of how the amateur bakers fared in the Bake Off tent...
This week’s Star baker was 61 year old Jane who produced a lemon and poppy seed drizzle cake to conquer all! 67 year old Pastor, Lee was the first to leave the show with Val clinging on by the skin of her teeth! Jaffa Cakes proved a hard task for all with upside down presentation, drippy chocolate and over baked Genoise sponge there wasn't a whole heap of praise flying around.
Our predicted winner? Benjamina, so watch this space!
