Bake Off spoilers!
In the next episode (June 30), the four remaining teams in the second heat are pushed to their limits as they face chocolate week. The teams have no idea what will be asked of them for their first challenge, and must rely on their patisserie instincts, innate knowledge and teamwork to create something that will impress the judges.
For the second challenge, the teams must construct famous skyline-inspired towering chocolate showpieces, along with geometric chocolate tarts that include a moving part.
Who will conquer chocolate to create stunning works and continue on their patisserie journey, and who will be leaving the competition?
