Brighton beach served as inspiration for last night’s Great British Bake Off biscuit week.
Brighton’s Janusz Domagala, who opened the second episode of the Channel 4 series, didn’t let the winning star baker get to his head during cake week last week.
“I don’t think being Star Baker last week won’t do you any good this week because anything could happen,” he said.
“Cookie week, here I come.”
This week, the 11 remaining bakers were challenged to create 18 identical decorative macarons that looked like something other than macarons.
Starting on a positive note, Janusz said, “They can explode, they can undercake, they can stick to the mat.
“There are 87 things that could go wrong with them.”
The 34-year-old, who lives in Brighton, opted for a city-inspired watermelon macaron.
“My inspiration for this cake is Brighton Beach,” he said.
“Because what’s better than cold watermelons on the beach?”
The judges liked the taste and look of Janusz’ cake but said it was dry.
Next came the Garibaldi Technique, where Janusz placed 6th.
And in the last Showstopper Challenge, he wowed the judges with his mask masterpiece made of Spiced Polish Cookie, Strawberry Sugar Cookie and Matcha Cookie Mask.
“It gives you a taste between the eyes,” Paul said.
“I love that,” Prue said.
Star Baker went to Maxy while Maisam was the second contestant to leave the tent.
Next up for Janusz is Bread Week.
