With cake week done, the remaining bakers must now prove themselves with biscuits. For the signature challenge, the bakers are given two hours to bake 24 identical biscotti of any shape, flavour or size. In the technical challenge, they are required to make eight arlettes, which are high-end light delicate cinnamon-flavoured biscuits, in two and a half hours. For the Showstopper, they must face the challenge of making 36 biscuits, to be presented in a biscuit box made of a different kind of biscuit mix. They are given four hours in this challenge.
