The final instalment of the Great British Bake Off, where the emotional attachment we’ve found to the bakers comes to its logical conclusion: only one can win, and it’s anyone’s game.
Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith set three challenges, as always, but every one must be perfect in this episode. In the signature, bakers must make a carrot cake worthy of the history books.
In the Technical, they are baking Belgian style, but the recipe will be kept a secret. Finally, in the most important challenge, the Showstopper, bakers create an entire baked banquet for the Mad Hatter’s tea party.
There will be tears and smiles, and when all is said and done, the competition has been a treat for everyone involved and given us all a bit of a sweet tooth.
