What is The Great British Bake Off prize?
You may be shocked to know that there isn’t actually a prize to be won when competing with other contestants in The Great British Bake Off… rather the prize of pride!
The winning prize is just flowers and a cake stand, at least that’s what has happened so far.
However, it’s commonly known that the winners of the show often go on to make a fortune from endorsement deals, sponsorships and appearances.
Previous Bake Off contestant Martha Collison, who reached the quarter-finals in the 2014 series, confirmed to Barrelhouse: “Everyone is so surprised and thinks there must be some secret cash, but all we really get is a bunch of flowers and a cake stand.
“But then, you also kind of become a national treasure just by doing it because everyone in Britain loves the Bake Off so much.”
