Linda's Flower Topped Florentines
Great British Baking Show ™ - Judging

Linda: "My Florentines are one of my sister's favorite biscuits. She had a really sweet tooth when we was kids. When my mum turned her back, I used to quickly eat her dinner so she could get to her pudding sooner."

Decorated with delicate sugar flowers and dark chocolate, Linda aimed to give her childhood-inspired Florentines a smooth finish. 

Linda: "I blend the nuts down into quite small chunks. That way, hopefully when they spread, you get a much more even surface."

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.
