Bonfire Night Apple Cake
Great British Baking Show ™ - Judging

Voice-Over: "For his bonfire night apple cake, Steven is planning a spectacular final flourish straight from his mum's recipe book."

Steven: "Every bonfire night, Mum would make us toffee apples. So these are done by taking a melon baller, small piece of apple, dip the toffee, hang them upside down. They would leave a trail of toffee which went the right way up. Will look like the flames of a fire."

Mary Berry: "It looks absolutely delicious. I love the bonfire flames, and the shine of the toffee is perfect. Beautifully baked."

Paul Hollywood: "To get that texture of apple, which is just slightly soft, and then you have those gorgeous, warming spices coming through. The combination of flavors is perfect. I mean, it's just like a little sum up of autumn. Very well thought through. Well done."

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.
