Great British Baking Show ™

Challenge Type:
Linda's "Festive Revival" Cake
Linda's "Festive Revival" Cake
The Great British Baking Show ™

In her original series, when asked to make a pineapple upside down pudding, Linda was judged to have created a 'pineapple fritter' and so she was out to redeem herself for that.

Also, it was choux pastry that finally saw Linda leaving the tent, so she built choux into her redemption cake.

Linda made dainty choux pastry swans, a teeny-tiny pineapple upside down cake, a three tier chocolate, chilli and ginger cake ... all on top of a  lemon cake filled with lemon curd.

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.
