Battenburg Cake
About the dish ...

The hosts said "The judges would like you to make that fan favorite, the Battenberg. Rectangular in shape and wrapped in marzipan. It can be any sponge you want, any flavor, but when you cut inside it needs to reveal a pattern or a design."

Prue Leith: " Battenberg is a lovely signature to kick off with every marzipan lover's favourite cake. Mine too."

Paul Hollywood: "What I'm looking for is a beautiful, smooth marzipan inside. Stark differences in colour of sponge. I would keep it basic if I was then, but make sure I'm punching with flavours and punching with colours."

Prue Leith: "It's a real treat. It's very rich because of the marzipan and it should be wonderful. I'm looking forward to it."
