It’s time for Paul and Pru to try 12 chocolate cakes and decide which one is the perfect bake.
For the first technical challenge of the series, Dan takes first place.
With the excited Amos in second place.
But Dana looked close to tears when she came 12th and Tasha 11th.
Bakers have debated whether or not to leave out the iconic missing raspberry on the famous chocolate cake.
However, it is too late as time is up and it is time for Paul and Pru to judge the bakes.
The bakers have been given ingredients to make the iconic chocolate cake from the opening credits of GBBO.
The new bewildered bakers are judged for the first time by Pruce and Paul.
The judges try the new contestants’ vertical layer cakes, but there are NO handshakes so far!
The first task for the nervous dozens of new bakers is to create a vertically layered sponge
Paul Hollywood, Prue Leith, Noel Fielding and Alison Hammond kicked off the show with a fun godfather skin.
Paul was clearly the Bread Father!
For the opening episode, the 12 new bakers kick off the 14th series with Cake Week.
In their first chance to impress the judges, the contestants are tasked with producing the perfect vertical layer cake for the Signature Challenge.
For the Technical Challenge, the bakers are given ingredients to create an iconic chocolate cake.
The Showstopper offers participants the opportunity to express their architectural skills with sponge.
The wait is almost over for the return of GBBO, which will air every Tuesday for the next ten weeks, with the final broadcast on November 28, 2023.
You’d think that the bakers who will be putting their sweat and tears into their delicious creations over the coming weeks would be competing for a big cash prize.
However, this is not the case.
The winning prize is just flowers and a cake stand.
Despite this, many of the Bake Off stars earn large sums of money through gigs, cookbooks and launching cooking schools.
This year’s series gets a twist – presenters have taken on the task of teaching British Sign Language – as the show welcomes its first ever deaf contestant.
Amateur bakers return to the iconic white tent for the fourteenth series, but WHERE is the Channel 4 show filmed?
It won’t be long before the hit baking series returns to Channel 4 screens tonight at 8pm.
