Cake, bread and pie lovers, rejoice! Our penchant for watching British people politely yet passionately baking in a tent will once again be satisfied thanks to the return of another season of The Great British Baking Show to PBS. 

In this season originally broadcast in in the UK in 2012, we are welcomed by the familiar faces of Paul, Mary, Sue and Mel.  The competition begins with cake week challenges that include fruited upside down cakes, rum babas and a cake that features a clever hidden design when sliced. On your marks, get set, BAKE!
