Saku Torte
Great British Baking Show ™ - Judging

Saku: "I am making a saku torte. It's like sachertorte, but instead of apricot jam, I'm using raspberry jam. Instead of writing sacher, I'm going to write saku."

Voice-over: "Saku's personalized twist on the classic sacher torte will see raspberry jam sandwiched between cakes of dark chocolate and ground almond. Finished with her own name, handpiped onto dark chocolate ganache."

Prue Leith: "It's a bit messy and Saku written it probably needed to be a little bit more stark. If you'd done that in white chocolate, it would have stood out better."

Prue Leith: "It's very chocolatey."

Paul Hollywood: "The recipe's coming through. The chocolate's beautiful and strong, but it's a little bit too gooey in the middle."

Prue Leith: "It's quite heavy and so you can't eat a lot of it."

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.
