Season 4, Episode 6: Botanical

Premiered July 14, 2017 on PBS | check local listings

It’s week six of The Great British Baking Show, and just seven bakers remain. This week, for the very first time on Baking Show, it’s Botanical Week. With three challenges inspired by nature, the bakers can reach for anything that grows to give their bakes maximum botanical taste. The bakers start with a signature challenge, a classic, with a twist, that demands sharp citrus flavors and perfect peaks. Hidden under the gingham cloth is a leafy technical challenge set by Mr. Hollywood. And, finally, the botanical showstopper is the biggest challenge of the series so far; not one, not two, but three tiers of elaborately decorated cake. Paul and Mary are looking for beautifully flavored sponges, and to be wowed by stunning floral designs. Three challenges, three chances to win star baker, three chances to avoid leaving the tent.
