Ten home bakers take part in a ‘bake off’, which will test every aspect of their baking skills as they battle it out to be crowned the Best Amateur Baker. Twelve of the country’s best amateur bakers take part in the second series of The Great British Bake Off, hosted by Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins. Over eight weeks their cake-baking, pastry, bread-making and patisserie skills are tested to the limit as they are challenged to bake everything from the perfect tarte au citron to towers of macaroons, and iced fingers to family pies. All the challenges are devised by legendary cookery writer and baker Mary Berry and acclaimed master baker Paul Hollywood who are also on hand to judge and taste their efforts.
