THE Great British Bake Off’s fourth episode saw the contestants take on Dairy Week.
So whose baking managed to impress judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith and who was eliminated in the latest episode? Here’s everything you need to know…
Who has left The Great British Bake Off tent?
- Week One, Cakes – Dan Chambers got the elbow after changing his recipe in the Signature Bake which left it under-baked. He fared a little better in the Technical Challenge with his attempt at baking six identical angel cake slices, placing ninth. Despite being credited for an original design with his Pirate Island cake, alongside its dry ice waterfall, it still wasn’t enough to keep him in the competition.
- Week Two, Biscuits – After having already left a not-so-great impression with Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith in week one, Jamie Finn was the next baker to receive the boot after failing to show any growth from his previous attempts. And it’s fair to say that week two proved to be just as challenging for the waiter from Surrey as he came bottom in the fig roll Technical Challenge and served up a messy Showstopper.
- Week Three, Bread – Following a good run during Biscuit Week, Amelia Le Bruin had a considerably harder time with bread. The fashion designer, who was named the worst baker in the Technical making burger buns, failed to impress with her “chaotic” chorizo lunch tear and was told her baking was “terrible” for her Caterpillar Transformation Showstopper.
- Week Four, Dairy – Phil struggled to keep up with his fellow bakers when his decoration in the signature and showstopper challenges fell flat with the judges. His garden-inspired mighti elderflower rockery and pistachio roses failed on all fronts, ultimately making him the next contestant to be eliminated from the show.
Who has won Bake Off 2019’s Star Baker?
- Week One, Cakes – Michelle Evans-Fecci bagged Star Baker after creating a toadstool cake in the Showstopper round. The Welsh mum impressed Prue and Paul as they praised her “faultless” cake.
- Week Two, Biscuits – It appeared as if nobody was truly surprised to see Alice Fevronia win the Star Baker title given that she succeeded with all three tasks in week two.
- Week Three, Bread – Michael Chkraverty truly deserved his Star Baker accolade after a great Bread Week. The theatre supervisor had a genuinely noteworthy week which began with him wowing the judges with his shocking Keralan Star Bread in the tear and share Signature Challenge – and receiving the coveted Hollywood handshake.
- Week Four, Dairy – Steph did exceptionally well with all three challenges in Dairy Week, which led her to become the new Star Baker. Paul and Prue both gushed over the flavours in her chocolate and raspberry buttermilk cake, even though it appeared to have been a tad too rich.
