Carole's "Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas  Tree Cake"

Carole felt the need to redeem herself by using plums (after a disastrous plum recipe in an earlier series) and also to show her recent skills with macarons.

Carole made a 5 tier plum and ginger cake, layered with plum jam and American buttercream, all decorated to look like a Christmas tree, with piped rosettes, colorful macarons and gingerbread men.

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.
