Alice seems to lack any concept of how to make proper puff pastry vis-à-vis the necessary folds, but everyone seems to have a handle on the choux pastry, which must be cooked and then piped onto a baking sheet, and filled once out of the oven. The 11 remaining bakers face a tough test in Cake Week, including a crowd-pleasing signature challenge, Prue's first technical challenge, and a chocolate collared showstopper. So undeniable that Alice manages to pull off the baking competition equivalent of a coup and clinch Star Baker even after coming in dead last in the Technical. Then there’s David and, apparently, he’s been bought by Big Campari. The bakers get to work and are immediately intimidated by the use of full puff pastry just one week after everyone got away with rough puff. Paul sets a spherical Technical - and with a place in the Bake Off Semi-final at stake, everyone is out to impress. Her secret power is having a little self control. Also runny. Sure, there are layers, but if you gave this to a kid for his birthday, he would cry. But the rest of the (all women) bakers still feel an intense need to prove they should be here, otherwise known as Womanhood 101. Velkommen to Danish Week in the latest episode of The Great British Bake Off. [. After getting all the elements of their bakes together, the gang starts constructing their glass boxes. Some of you will recall that last season after Jon Jenkins was kicked off the show in week seven, the remaining bakers paid tribute to him by wearing his signature Hawaiian shirts. Yay, science! Rosie is relieved that the creme pate was the only weak spot in her bake. For the Showstopper Challenge, the bakers are asked to make sugar glass boxes with transparent panes that house some patisserie delight of their choice. Ew. There’ll be raspberry-gin and mint creme pate, lemon Bavarian cream, yuzu jelly, a lemon mirror glaze, and isomalt strands. The new film from Vince Vaughn and Kathryn Newton is clever about horror conventions, but its biggest surprise is its streak of sincerity. After telling the bakers, this bake is “very hard to make look good,” Prue shows Paul what she’s looking for. Okay, a beautifully decorated cake, but essentially alternating rows of beetroot and prunes and parsnips and apricot sponges, chocolate soil, ground almonds, maple syrup cream cheese frosting, and piped buttercream succulents, the hottest plants of 2015. The eighth series of The Great British Bake Off began on 29 August 2017, with this being the first of The Great British Bake Off to be broadcast on Channel 4, after the production company Love Productions moved the show. Prue also notes that they’re too big. Well, maybe reconsider that because this week’s episode of the Great British Baking Show featured nothing short of a miracle. Prue and Paul have set three very different challenges to test the remaining bakers. Her first choux attempt was too runny and the resulting choux look sad. Do you believe in miracles? and Alice is wildly unpredictable in the best way, plus she’s been slowly trending upward over the last three weeks. The other bakers are nearly done and haven’t hit any of the major hiccups Rosie has, though Alice burns her caramel and Steph’s puff pastry loses a lot of butter during the baking process. A layer of full puff pastry, topped with caramel-dipped choux pastry with a line of “silky” creme chiboust followed by another layer of puff pastry and caramel-dipped choux pastry with a line of Chantilly cream piped down the middle. The Weeknd Will Headline the 2021 Super Bowl Halftime Show. [, Five kitchen gardens from chefs around the world. © 2020 Vox Media, LLC. Only one can claim Star Baker, while one of them will leave the tent for good. Anyway, no use crying over eliminated horses. The tent is now down to just four bakers. We’ll just reminisce on Karmageddon instead. David is happy to have pulled off a dessert that isn’t so sweet. The remaining bakers are just three patisserie challenges away from the final. Having received nearly all positive feedback in the Signature and second in the Technical, David realizes he’s pretty much a shoo-in for the final and can kind of rein it all in now. And we lost some precious people along the way: Michael, Helena/Grim-Joy, HENRY! the famous Mrs. A fitting setting for one of her most fun songs. Jon Voight is also set to speak at the gala on December 27. Meanwhile, Steph’s lemon mousse, which will house her raspberry jelly, “isn’t as set as it was at home.” Only David seems to have everything in order. Twelve homebakers take part in a 'bake off', which will test every aspect of their baking skills as they battle it out to be crowned the Great British Bake Off's Best Amateur Baker. Veterinarian Rosie has had an even more uneven path: She impressed the judges in Biscuits Week and scored first or second in a few Technicals, but for the last four weeks or so, she’s survived because someone else did worse than her. Prue notes they look “so unusual” but in a good way. Food and Wine. Depressing enough for you? A savoury pastry Signature, with no butter involved. It doesn’t get much better for Rosie after that: Her religieuse are too small to be interesting, the brioche is dry and floury, and there’s nothing worth writing home about in general. Time begins to tick down and miraculously, Rosie finishes on time. Don’t listen to ‘em, Alice! Who will keep their cool and win star baker? And finally, a spectacular Showstopper that, in the heat of the tent, threatens to lead to catastrophe. No stodgy cakes or soggy bottoms here. They looked fantastic! Over the side, Paul says he’s impressed that Alice is really going for it with all her disparate elements. The bakers will have to be picture perfect with their first showstopper - a spectacular 3D biscuit portrait challenge that requires precision baking and superb decorating skills. David is up next and, as usual, his bake is stunningly neat — from the outside.
