Manon: "I use ginger when I cook Asian food and I've always used the fresh one. You just really have the essence of the ginger." 


Voice-Over: "Manon's sponge will be coated in a lemon and ginger Italian meringue buttercream, and there's fresh ginger in her lemon curd filling as well as her sponge batter."

Prue Leith: "Very elegant looking cake. And a little touch of chocolate. Again, you blowtorched it. Nicely done. Such a rich colour in there."


Paul Hollywood: "I certainly taste the ginger and the lemon. It's so beautiful how soft the sponge is. And because the lemon curd is so strong, the Italian meringue makes it less so. Yeah. It's one of the best ginger cakes I've had for some time. That actually reminds me of my nan's cake. It's full of ginger, but it's the bake. It's so good."
