Honey and Apricot Ginger Cake
Great British Baking Show ™ - Judging

Briony's honey and ginger sponges were decorated with dark chocolate ganache and honeycomb and filled with apricot jam. The frosting was honey buttercream. There was both fresh ginger and ground ginger in the sponges. 


Paul Hollywood: "It looks fantastic. Lovely looking cake. Unfortunately, the apricot tends to be the overwhelming flavour. Honestly, apricot and ginger doesn't necessarily work well together. 

Prue Leith: "The chocolate is really shiny, but the cake is very dry and didn't really taste of honey, nor was it very sweet."

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.
