Great British Bake Off 2018 – who left Bake Off tonight and who was star baker for Vegan Week?
This week was Vegan Week and the bakers rose to the challenges and produced some masterpieces. So whose creations weren't quite delicious enough and who claimed the coveted Star Baker title?
What happened during Vegan Week?
Nine bakers took on the task of making vegan delights for the judges.
But who impressed Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith in the first ever Vegan Week?
Here were the winners and losers of each challenge:
- Signature Bake – vegan tarts. Rahul's blew the judges away, while Ruby's left them feeling deflated.
- Techincal Challenge – A pavolva, but rather than using egg white for the meringue, bakers were tasked with using aquafaba. Sixth was Kim Joy, whose piping was described as "boring" by Paul. Rahul triumphed again, coming first with his pavolva which "had everything," according to Prue. He was chuffed because it was "The first time he came first in technical".
- Showstopper Challenge – a celebration cake made from plant-based ingredients. Ruby had a cake disaster when her tiered creation collapsed as the bakers existed the tent, but luckily the flavour saved it. Rahul's creation also collapsed, and the judges didn't like his flavour, either.
Who left the tent in episode seven of GBBO 2018?
Jon left despite Prue and Paul praising his great flavours.
However, he said he was thrilled to have made it to week seven of the competition.
Who was the seventh Star Baker?
Kim-Joy's attention to detail impressed the judges and she claimed the coveted title thanks to her sweet fox-themed cake.
Before entering the tent, Kim-Joy said her mixed-heritage background is reflected in her open attitude to all styles of baking.
Her baking passion is bread and she has even turned her hand to every style and type of bread there is.
