What will happen in episode six of Bake Off?

Dessert Week might seem like an easy theme but we can be sure that the baking will once again be put to the test now we have halfway through the series.

The signature challenge will be an elegant and challenging bake with delicate layers, while Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig will reveal the technical round – which is set to test the bakers’ ability to pull off delicate assembly and precise decoration.

Then the Showstopper will see the contestants create a spherical celebration cake.

Paul and Prue will then decide which baker is deserving of the Star Baker title, while another contestant will ultimately face the boot from the show.

What happened in episode five?

The contestants were tasked with making four decorative custard pies and David Artheton thrilled the judges with his vanilla custard pies decorated with flapper girl biscuits and a glazed fruit topping.

He even managed to get a Paul Hollywood handshake!

The bakers then had to make 18 Beignet Souffles (French doughnuts) with sabayon as the Technical challenge.

Finally they were tasked with creating two-tiered Prohibition alcohol infused cake inspired by their favourite cocktail as the Showstopper.

Poor Rosie Brandreth-Poynter had the day of nightmares as she prepared her Blackberry custard pies with matcha tea shortcrust and proceeded to drop one of them on the floor.

To make matters, worse her elderflower jelly dome topping completely melted as everything went to pot for the baker.

While Michael Chakraverty also struggled while making his Beignet Souffles and was left in tears as his attempts kept failing.

He joked: “I need to get real men cry trending this week. Hashtag  man tears.”

Facing the challenges of 1920s week was a roaring success for Steph Blackwell as she was named Star Baker for a second week in a row.


First she impressed with her “perfect” zesty custard pies, while she also managed to fare well in the Technical challenge.

While her Sour Lime Pina Colada cake with Swiss meringue buttercream and candy shard toppings had the judges raving again.

Helena Garcia and Michelle Evans-Fecci both got eliminated from the show in an unexpected turn of events.

Having been Star Baker earlier in the series, Michelle didn’t do enough to stay in while Helena joined her out of the door despite winning the Technical challenge this week.
