‘The Great British Baking Show’ Recap: The Final

The day has finally arrived; a culmination of the past nine weeks of baking triumphs and blunders. But before we tuck into the deliciously stress-filled finale of The Great British Baking Show, you can review last week’s semi-final recap here. In fact, if you want to go back and remember how the whole series unfolded, you can check out recaps of every episode this season right here and relive the sweet and savory, the joy and the tears (mostly Ruby’s).

And so the field of 13,000 applicants had finally been whittled down to the three amateur bakers deemed most talented by Paul and Mary. Ruby, Frances and Kimberly faced off for one last trio of challenges In hopes of earning the Baking Show championship title. They had to impress the judges with their technique, flavors and originality – not a walk in the park (or down the aisle) by any means.

‘The Great British Baking Show’ Recap: The Semi-Final

On last week’s episode of The Great British Show, our contestants were stretched to their limits without any gluten and had to rise to the occasion without eggs or any other dairy. Youth won out over experience as we bid farewell to Christine and Ruby was awarded yet another jewel for her Star Baker tiara. For a look at the all the alternative baking shenanigans, check out the recap here.

The four remaining bakers who advanced to the semifinal had to pull out all the stops to survive French week. As if deciphering Mel and Sue’s Franglais wasn’t enough, they had to whip up bakes from appetizers to desserts all originating from the land across the Channel.

‘The Great British Baking Show’ Recap: Quarter Final

Previously on The Great British Baking Show: Pastry week proved to be one of the most challenging yet. Frances finally achieved Star Baker status with her whimsical and tasty creations while Glenn, maker of big, bold bakes, was sent home for taking a chance on inverted puff pastry. The rest of the flaky details can be found here.

This week Sue proclaimed the tent testosterone free, taking a little dig at Paul in the process. But the fact remains, we had an all-female quarter final and this quintet of bakers had virtually no margin for error.
