    Sweet Dough

    It’s week six and time for sweet dough — but will it prove bittersweet for the bakers? They start off with a Signature tea loaf. Since most of the bakers choose to make something connected to home, Mary and Paul are presented with everything from locally sourced loaves from Yorkshire and Oxford to Devonshire-inspired panettone and Welsh bara brith. The bakers face Paul’s most twisted Technical challenge yet and a Showstopper that draws on all of Europe for inspiration: 36 sweet European buns, from Swedish cinnamon buns to German schnecken and French brioches.

    French Week

    Three French bakes stand between the four semi-finalists and a place in the final. The Signature challenge raises the stakes, tasking the bakers to make three different types of savory canapés in just two-and-a-half hours. One must be choux and one another type of pastry such as shortcrust; the third is baker’s choice. The Technical challenge is the complex charlotte royale, which combines a perfect Swiss roll surrounding a delicate bavarois, set with gelatin to hold a firm dome. The final is a truly iconic French patisserie: the opera cake.
