The Great British Bake Off Quiz: Are you a Star Baker?

The Great British Bake Off has grown from being a niche BBC Two competition to somewhat of a cultural phenomenon over the past decade.

Channel 4’s successful bid to acquire the show from 2017 saw Mary Berry, Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc wave goodbye to the tent – along with some viewers – but it has since grown again and developed into the channel’s most-watched programme.

With series 12 well underway, now seems like a good time to reminisce about the greatest moments in GBBO history.

From seeing the creation of spectacular, gravity-defying showstoppers to culinary catastrophes, including a memorable baked Alaska, we have certainly had our cake and eaten it – and perhaps been inspired to bake our own treats at home too.
