Matty's Tiramisu Vertical Layer Cake
Great British Baking Show ™ - Judging

Matty said "When I hear some of the flavour combinations the other bakers are coming up with, I'm like, wow, how did they think of that? My cake is a take on a tiramisu. So it's a coffee cake with coffee mascarpone cream. "

The punchy coffee flavour in Matty's sponge and mascarpone filling was planned to be balanced with a light vanilla buttercream, but in the event, he couldn't get the butter to play nicely in a cold tent, and he ended up using mascarpone cream to ice the 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.
