Hermine's Chocolate and Orange Battenberg
Great British Baking Show ™ - Judging

In the marzipan for her chocolate orange Battenberg, orange liqueur wasn't the only surprising ingredient. There was also marmalade in it, in the place of eggs.


Prue Leith: "That looks really pretty. 

Paul Hollywood: "I like the decoration. I like the fact that you've glazed it as well, because that, again, sets it off. All the flavors are there."

Prue Leith: "I think the texture is very good. It's very neat. I like the marzipan. Individual elements are good, including the buttercream. I think it's a lovely piece of cake. "

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.
