It’s week nine of The Great British Baking Show, and it’s the semi-final. Now, just four bakers remain. It’s Patisserie Week, three crucial challenges, three chances to make it to the final. To kick start things in the signature challenge, the bakers are once again butter bashing and folding their pastry to achieve perfect lamination for this difficult French pastry. In the technical challenge, Paul has set the bar high, testing the bakers’ patisserie prowess with a yeast based cake with a fruity top and delicate chocolate work. The pressure is on! In the final showstopper, it’s the bakers’ last chance to prove they have what it takes to make it to the final, with a multiple mini-cake bake. The timings are crucial to achieve the high-end finish the judges are looking for. Which of the bakers will impress Mary and Paul enough to earn their place in next week’s final of The Great British Baking Show? And which baker will be leaving the tent?
