Classic Apple and Walnut Cake
Great British Baking Show ™ - Judging

Maxy: "It's apple and walnut with cream cheese frosting."  

Voice-over: "Maxy's classic cake features layers of spiced apple and walnut sponge filled with cream cheese frosting, apple puree and salted caramel, elegantly decorated with fresh apple and whole walnuts."

Prue Leith: "If I walked into a room and saw that cake, I'd know that was your cake. It's got Maxy written all over it. I mean, it is neat as a pin. I love the decoration on the top, the little apple strips." 

Maxy: "So I've made an apple and walnut cake and I've crowned the top layer with some caramel." 

Paul Hollywood: "I think that's a really good cake. The apple comes through beautifully. Walnut is that texture at the end. I think you've done the apple justice, actually. 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.
