Having survived weeks of whisking, kneading, proving and icing – plus Paul Hollywood’s cutting critiques, Mary Berry’s inadvertent double entendres and Mel and Sue’s baking puns – the original baker’s dozen has been reduced to three.
For the final, the first task is to make a pithivier, a puff pastry pie that can easily end up with – yes, that’s right – a soggy bottom. Then, in what may be one technical challenge too far, they make 24 fondant fancies (you know, like the ones that an exceedingly good cake company produces) that must be neat and exactly the same size despite fondant icing being horribly messy.
Then, before the winner is announced, they make a light chiffon cake, although someone’s mix falls rather heavily to the floor.
It’s been like the Olympics of the baking world. But with tank tops, “doughnut doom” moments, kitsch gingerbread houses and floral bomber jackets. But dry your tears – there are several specials to look forward to.
After weeks of pastries, cakes and sponges, collapsing gingerbread houses and dodgy doughnuts, there are only three remaining bakers. But only one can be crowned the winner, and to prove they have what it takes the finalists face their most demanding challenges yet. Over two days, they must create a perfect pithivier, or puff-pastry pie, before making fondant fancies and their last showstopper - the notoriously difficult chiffon sponge. Only then will judges Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry decide who deserves the 2012 title. Presented by Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins.
