How the show works

The competition will see 16 contestants taking part, starting the competition with two separate week-long heats facing Technical Bakes and Showstopper challenges.

Only the best will get through to the third and final week, having put their cake, biscuit, bread and pastry-making skills to the test.

The first episode, Liam tests the bakers in a tricky cartoon Technical Challenge, where they must turn a 3D cake into a 2D comic delight. Then in the Showstopper, the bakers transport the judges beyond space and time with time-travel-themed cakes
