Can you believe another year of the Great British Bake Off is nearly over? It’s been an exciting season, with controversy, thrills and spills, as well as some incredible baking on display.
For our quarter-final week we’re testing your skill with multi-tiered cakes and flower modelling with marzipan or icing. We want you to bake a wedding cake with a minimum of 3 tiers and decorate it with marzipan or icing flowers. To add an extra bit of variety we want you to ensure that your flowers are of varying sizes too.
This week we’re delighted to have the incredible Terry Tang, of Terry Tang Designer Cakes, judging the competition to cast his eye over your efforts. Originally a builder and stone mason, Terry now sculpts stunning creations in icing and marzipan. His skill at designing and decorating cakes has been recognised by multiple awards including the Baking Industry Awards ‘Celebration Cake Business of The Year 2013’ and 4-times ‘Celebration Cake Maker Of The Year’.
Terry will be judging your skill at creating a multi-tiered wedding cake decorated with a variety of different sized icing or marzipan flowers.
If you need some help with sugarcrafting in marzipan or icing we’ve included a step by step guide on the competition PDF. On the PDF you’ll find instructions on how to craft and create flowers using marzipan or icing.

Remember we’ll be judging you on the following:
