Great British Baking Show ™ - Judging

Voice-Over:  "After failing to impress with flavour last week, Syabira plans to wow with a cake inspired by her favorite Malaysian ingredient, asam boi, and also chilli." 

Syabira: "I'm actually trying to bring the flavors together." 

Voice-over: "Syabira will spread sour plum and chili, cream cheese icing and bramley apple crumble between layers of apple sponge to create a giant apple shaped cake.

Paul Hollywood: "I'm not sure about the face. It's sort of gone out all over the place, isn't it?" 

Prue Leith: "I love the face. I mean, for heaven's sake, it's a witch. Of course she can be crooked." 

Syabira: "This is my favorite snack of apples, sour plum and chili." 

Prue leith: "I love it. Really powerful flavors. Sour plum is perfect. That cake is beautiful. And it's so light." 

Paul Hollywood: "I was about to say that I didn't get the chilli, but it's just come in. I think you deserve a handshake. Chili is the thing that gets me. It's a real triumph. Flavour's back."

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.
