Black Forest Slice
Great British Baking Show ™ - Judging

Dan: "My dish is a riff on a black forest gateau. Maybe they were just trendy when I was growing up, but you just don't see them very much these days." 

Voice-Over: "Despite being too young to remember the seventies as a boy, Black Forest Gateau was Dan's absolute favorite. He's making a vanilla cream topping and will decorate with intricate tempered chocolate."

Prue Leith: "I wasn't sure about the kirsch, but I could eat that with a great deal of pleasure."

Paul Hollywood: "Well, the decoration is absolutely excellent. Everything is very neat. You pipe very well. It's not too thick. Impressive. I think they look amazing. Good interior. It looks incredible. But when you get inside and you do hit that cherry and the topping, it's just a really nice cake. I can sit and eat the whole one."

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.
