Pineapple and Coconut Sandwich Cake
Great British Baking Show ™ - Judging

Sophie (seen squeezing spare liquid from her fresh pineapple): "I'm not doing too crazy. I don't want to squash it". 

Voice-Over: "Sophie will sandwich her squeezed pineapple and coconut sponges with coconut. Italian meringue, buttercream." 

Sophie: "I just want to avoid too much leakage into the batter. Done it without before it was fine. It's just a precaution, really."

Mary Berry: "It's very neat. The piping is good. Oh, look at that sponge. I think that texture's lovely. "

Paul Hollywood: "Pineapple flavor comes walloping through. You must have dried the pineapple a bit, did you? That's delicious. I mean, it really is." 

Mary Berry: "Oh, my gosh. The pineapple that comes through there is delicious. And then that silkiness that comes from the italian meringue just works so well with that. I'd have another piece of that."

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.
