Here we are again, another episode of The Great British Bake Off! Apart from Music Mondays, this is definitely my favourite day of the week!
Last week, the bakers were put to the test making pastry, attempting to perfect pasties, elevate eclairs and craft caged tarts.
This week, on the show’s 100th episode, there’s a NEW set of challenges for a week I don’t think has been attempted in the tent before: Japanese Week!
As with my previous posts, I’ll talk about the bakers, the challenges and the results. SPOILERS AHEAD FOR THE GREAT BRITISH BAKE OFF, SEASON 11 EPISODE 6.
As I’ve said previously, my opinion on the bakers will change as the show goes on.

The sixth week of the competition was Japanese Week and, as always, the bakers took on the Signature, Technical and Showstopper challenges.
For the Signature Challenge, the bakers were asked to make 8 steamed buns. They were all very cute, you can definitely tell it’s getting closer to the final as the standard has improved.
For the Technical Challenge, the bakers were tasked with making matcha crepe cakes. The interesting challenge produced interesting results.
For the Japanese Week Showstopper, the bakers were asked to create kawaii cakes. There were some crazy, cute cakes in this round – for sure.
Things are getting tougher at this stage, as the end ( 😭) of the competition inches nearer. It was a tough one but the results were:
⭐️ Star Baker: Lottie
👋🏻 Out: Mark
Not going to lie, I’m gutted with this result – not just because I had Mark in the group sweep. Saying that, it just shows how tough the competition is – and has always been! Next week, the tent has gone all 80s!
Did you watch tonight’s episode? I’d love to know your thoughts in the comments 😊 .
