Athena July 23, 2014 Share July 23, 2014 The Bake Off is back for another year, welcoming the tent's youngest-ever baker and the oldest. All 12 bakers will be challenged on their baking skills from every angle by judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood, all the while helped - or hindered - by Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins. But their first hurdle is cake. As they enter the tent for the very first time, their first Signature Challenge is to make a swiss roll. But with such a seemingly simple challenge comes a risk - who will have the tightest roll? Whose roll will split? Should the bakers go for the classic or push the boat out to impress?Recovering from their first challenge, they face their first ever Technical Challenge. It's cake week... it's a Mary recipe... it's a classic cherry cake. But will the bakers be able to suspend the cherries and ice their cakes to the exacting standard of Ms Berry?As the next day dawns so does the Showstopper. The bakers must make classic British cakes... in perfect miniature... all 36 of them... Twelve bakers compete. Airing 8pm Wednesday August 6, 2014 on BBC One. Source: GBBO Facebook. That's one less contestant than last year. Come on guys, let's make this a popular board so I can ask Dave to promote us on the forums home page. Hehe. 3 Link to comment
