Great British Baking Show ™ - Judging

David: "I'm actually doing a classic vanilla custard, and that's it. Basically, when I was looking up custard tarts, I found out that in the 1920s, they used to do bone marrow and dried fruit in the custard, which didn't light my fire." T

Prue Leith: "It looks like a custard pie you'd see in a French patisserie." 

Paul Hollywood: "Yeah. Very professional, very neat on the outside. It is absolutely exquisite. You managed to make these flapper girls look quite flirty. The base to the amount of custard. Perfect. Beautifully cut. That's a custard pie. It's silky smooth, delicious. Yes, it's the perfect custard pie. The base, crumbly, crispy. The custard, baked to perfection, beautifully level, filled to the top. And then the design, impeccable."

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.
