Desserts this week and the bakers serve up some interesting confections, among them what’s described as an “intimidating” cake, a “monstrous” one, a chocolate breeze block, and an untidy torte with, according to Sue, “more layers than an archaeological dig”. Sue, by the way, is sans Mel. It’s a bit like having a raspberry pavlova without the meringue – nice but not the same.
The bakers are struggling with their meringues, too – towering ones that take six hours to bake – but it’s the crème caramel in the technical challenge that proves to be their downfall as well as giving us the star GBBO innuendo of the week: “Great wobble”.
Judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood assess the remaining contestants' dessert-making skills. The hopefuls start by creating tortes before tackling this week's technical test - the delicate French dish of creme caramel. Though these two rounds provide a stern examination of the amateurs' creative flair and technical ability, they then face possibly the toughest task of the series so far - a six-hour challenge to create a show-stopping layered meringue. Once the sugar has set, who will be this week's Star Baker, and who will be going home? Presented by Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins. From 2012.
