Great British Baking Show ™ - Judging

Voice-Over: "Dawn's multicolored yo-yo macarons will be filled with a mascarpone cream packed full of sharp strawberry flavour." 

Dawn: "This is freeze dried strawberry powder. I'm not measuring, I'm just throwing it in." 

Voice-over: "Dawn is using sharpness to combat her macaron sweetness." 

Dawn: "I don't want to get told there's not enough strawberry, do I?"

Prue Leith: "They look perfect. Little macarons. Nice feet on the bottom, crisp outside. Neat as a pin."

Paul Hollywood: "Very good." 

Dawn: "They've got a strawberry mascarpone cream filling." 

Paul Hollywood: "The macaron is perfect. Absolutely perfect. The idea of putting the string round with fondant, it just lifts you up, because sometimes inside of macarons can be quite heavy and dense. That's also a really clever idea. It's effective. 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.
