Hosted by Liam Charles and Tom Allen, the toughest Bake Off on television welcomes six teams from top hotels, restaurants and small businesses who will battle it out for their place in the competition. Once again, judges Cherish Finden and Benoit Blin set a pair of exceedingly tricky challenges, the first of which requires exacting precision and creativity – 24 strawberry tarts and 24 fruit salads – in just three and a half hours. For the teams’ final challenge – the showpiece – the teams have just five hours the reinvent a classic dessert. For this heat it’s that retro favourite the Pineapple Upside Down cake – just how will the teams turn these from the extraordinary to the ordinary. At the end of the two days, one of these teams must leave the competition.
