Rahul: "I'm putting in stem ginger. I love the ginger flavor, so I always just keep adding more and more all the time. I'm using dry ginger as well as chopped stemmed gingers. When I told my mom, I mean, she was quite surprised at why people would have ginger in a cake because in India, we normally use ginger for savory things. We cook curries and stuff with it, so she was quite surprised." 


Voice-over: "Rahul's mom has never tried his triple layered ginger and caramel cake with cinder toffee inspired by a very British tradition. "


Rahul: "The first time I had ginger cake was during a bonfire night celebration. I didn't really think these flavors could actually work because in India, sweet things means extremely sweet."

About The Great British Baking Show ™

The Great British Bake Off ™ (often abbreviated to Bake Off or GBBO and referred to in the United States as The Great British Baking Show ™) is a streamed British baking competition, in which a group of amateur bakers compete against each other in a series of rounds, hoping to impress the judges with their baking skills. One contestant in The Great British Baking Show ™ is eliminated in each round, and the winner is selected from the three contestants who reach the final.


The Great British Baking Show ™ operates on a weekly elimination process to find the best all-around baker from the contestants, who are all amateurs. In each episode, the bakers are given three challenges based on that week's theme: a signature bake, a technical challenge, and a show-stopper. The bakes are assessed by the judges who then choose a "Star Baker" for the week, and a contestant is also eliminated. In the final round, three bakers are left and a winner is chosen from the three.
