Great British Baking Show ™ - Judging

Kim-Joy (deep in preparation): "We've got the caramel here, and we've got the pears poaching here, and I'm making biscuits over here." 


Voice-Over: "Kim Joy won't just be baking cakes." 


Kim-Joy: "It's my little gingerbread house. I really like miniature things."


Voice-Over: "The smallest gingerbread house will sit atop crystallized ginger sponge with cream cheese frosting and salted caramel drizzle."


Kim-Joy: "Ginger's homely, and it makes you think of being at home. You can picture yourself in the house, and there's pears in the background, and they're kind of like trees."

Prue Leith: "The gingerbread house looks incredible. The attention to detail looks fantastic. "


Paul Hollywood: "That is the most beautiful texture cake. The flavor from the ginger and the powder is beautifully balanced, and it's got a nice warmth that comes through that is beautiful. Well done."

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.
