Great British Bake Off Semi Final - The rise and fall of Rosie

Hello Bakers

Patisserie week was chosen for the semi-final.

The fab four were tasked with producing domed tartlets to start with.  All produced creditable offerings that were well within their compass.  Final assembly and finishing off proved to be the final judging points.  Alice edged the judges approval with her chocolate dome mirrored finish admired despite some shoddy piping (time restrictions had come in to play).

The technical challenge was a Gateau St.Honore in honour of the patron Saint of Bakers and Pastry Chefs (what a star!).  This was a creation with Puff pastry, choux pastry, cream puffs, caramelized sugar, chiboust cream and whipped cream.  Rosie had a melt down half way through with her chouxs failing badly.  Possibly also feeling the pressure from adverse comment on the Signature and many believing she was lucky to get through instead of Henry last week.  To her great credit she re did her choux and ended up being first in the Technical challenge.  However, this did not reflect that well on the others.

The showstopper was once again the defining course as there was nothing separating them after Rosie won the Technical.  Unfortunately Rosie's contents inside her sugar case failed to impress the judges with blandness mentioned.  She just fell behind David who once again did just enough to get through.  His greenhouse casing was impressive but fell in line with his series consistency of often producing style over substance.  Fair play to him in getting a win through stategy.  It will be a major surprise if he usurps Steph or Alice for the title.  But its not all over until the final bake has risen!  Good luck to all of them.  Until then - 

Happy Baking!
