Show Synopsis

It’s the moment every cake, bread and pie lover has been waiting for.

Bake Off is back and this time, the search goes nationwide in a bid to find and crown South Africa’s best amateur baker.

Each week the bakers will be given a new technique to master that will stretch their baking skills as they race against the clock, and each other, to deliver a show-stopping, mouth-watering creation. However, after nine weeks of whisking and piping, only one can emerge victorious.
