The Great British Bake Off 2014: The final three bakers
After two months of competitive baking, Paul and Mary have chosen their Bake Off finalists. Here are the best creation from Richard, Luis and Nancy.
The Great British Bake Off final is one week away and the 12 bakers we all met more than two months ago have been whittled down to just three...
Richard's Black Forest Chocolate Fondants - "Now that's what I call a sauced pudding!" Mary exclaimed over Richard's little bakes.
Richard, Nancy and Luis are still in the running to be the Bake Off champion 2014. We take a look back at some of their best creations from the fifth series. I hope you are not hungry!
Nancy lives in the south of France. She wants to pass on her baking knowledge to her grandchildren and see them develop a passion for food and cooking. I bet they love tucking into some of these baked wonders.
Luis was born and raised in Stockport, but both his parents are Spanish. He's been very consistent all the way through the Bake Off but is it enough to secure title? All we know is that he makes fabulous cakes.
Luis' Indian Rose Baklava - Paul Hollywood wondered whether Luis' meticulous creations were actually baklava but we think his flowery masterpieces are ace.
Richard's Mocha and Pink Grapefruit Entremets - Mary described Richard's neat 'consistent' bakes as being of a professional finish.
Richard is from north London and he loves bread and pastry. Paul and Mary have awarded him Star Baker a record five times so far, which will only leave him confident going into the final.
Nancy's Chocolate Crusted Passion Fruit Tart - Mary called Nancy's tart 'original' and Paul 'liked it very much', while smiling broadly!
Luis' Tropical Manchester Tart - Mary waxed lyrical about Luis' tart and Paul found it 'difficult to critique' for once!
Richard's Fruit Swedish Tea Ring - Paul said Richard 'nailed' his bake, from the structure, to its flavours.
Nancy's Summer Pudding Alaska - Paul thought Nancy's pudding was an 'exceptional' effort in the heat of the tent!
Nancy's Jaffa Orange Cakes - Nancy's perfectly uniform sponges were achieved by way of a custom-made guillotine!
Luis' Stars & Stripes Eclairs - "You've nailed it on all counts," Paul said to a thrilled Luis about his colourful bakes.
