Have you got what it takes to be in the class of 2018?
Have you been inspired by Steven’s showstoppers, Liam’s punchy flavours and Stacey’s ambitious bakes? If so, you might have what it takes to put your skills to the test in the tent on next year’s series of The Great British Bake Off. Applications are now open until 7th January 2018, meaning the hunt has already begun to find the country’s best amateur baker of 2018.
If you find yourself surrounded by rolling pins, scales, wooden spoons and measuring cups on a regular basis, and have noticed that you’re almost always coated in a fine layer of flour, you might be ready to take your talent to the next level by going on the Bake Off.
Every bake that you create will be tasted and judged by Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood – who, between them, have decades of experience, a whole shelf’s worth of books, and a mantelpiece covered with baking accolades (Prue even had a Michelin-starred restaurant). Their role in the show is to nurture the bakers’ talents, and to do that, they have to give honest, uninhibited feedback – both good and bad.
Dough you have what it takes to be the UK’s best amateur baker, 2018?
Well, there’s only one way to find out the answer to that question: apply to be a baker on series nine of The Great British Bake Off.
