Episode 9: Bake Off: The Professionals

Summary

Liam Charles and Tom Allen present the semi-final, which sees the four remaining pairs of patisserie chefs baking four batches of petit fours and a magical table scene inspired by the teddy bear's picnic. At the heart of their piece must be jelly-based desserts and accompanying edible elements, to help bring their story to life. Benoit Blin and Cherish Finden judge their efforts and decide which pair will be leaving one week before the final

Review

There are hugs and high fives as the teams finish their batches of exquisite petit fours – although there’s also an awkward moment between one pair who clearly aren’t in the mood to celebrate. Inevitably they’re not the ones who get a double “Boom!” from Benoit Blin or an “Oh-la-la genius!” from Cherish Finden.

However, it gets really exciting with the interactive showpieces of jelly desserts telling the story of a teddy bear’s picnic, but with a hidden surprise. Among my highlights is a lake with jelly fish, a little BBQ to toast marshmallows, edible bubbles and candyfloss clouds. It’s a magical semi-final.
