The Great British Bake Off | Cake Week Preview (Channel 4)

The Great British Bake Off is back, as the nation's most famous tent gets pitched in the grounds of Welford Park once again.



Noel Fielding and Matt Lucas return to lead the latest batch of bakers through 30 brand-new challenges set by judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith.



The series kicks off with Cake Week and the bakers' first opportunity to impress the judges. In the Signature, they are challenged to produce 12 perfect mini cakes.




Next under the gingham cloth are the ingredients for their first Technical... a striking sponge cake which should be familiar.


Finally, the bakers create a Showstopper that expresses their architectural skills as they make a scaled-down version of a home close to their hearts, entirely from sponge. Twelve bakers, three challenges, only one can be crowned star baker, and sadly, one will be going home.




Bake Off returns Tuesday at 8pm on Channel 4.
