LifeStyle Food: The Great Australian Bake Off Finale 15 Dec


The Grand finale of The Great Australian Bake Off airs next Tuesday night (15 December) at 8.30pm on LifeStyle with the final three being revealed in last night’s tense penultimate episode.

Jasmin Hartley, 26, from Mackay, Sian Redgrave, 23, from Perth and Suzy Stefanidis, 45, from Melbourne are the three bakers who will battle it out for baking supremacy.

THE GREAT AUSTRALIAN BAKE OFF started nine weeks ago with 12 of Australia’s finest home bakers stepping into the Bake Off Shed for the very first time, hoping they had the right ingredients to go all the way. Each week, judges Maggie Beer and Matt Moran farewelled one baker until just three were left – Jasmin, Sian and Suzy.

Jasmin’s creativity and artistic flair has won her Star Baker twice; Sian’s jaw-dropping designs have seen her crowned Star Baker three times and, despite winning Star Baker once, Suzy has sparkled throughout the competition.

During the final episode, these three bakers take it to the next level with a Signature of the classic Australian treat: Vanilla Slice, an awe-inspiring Technical challenge of Cornucopia Cake and a Showstopper where there are no rules and it’s entirely up to the bakers on what they make.

The finale features a special guest appearance by delicious. Editor-in-chief Kerrie McCallum – as well as earning the title of Australia’s Best Amateur Baker, the winner will have one of their recipes featured in delicious. magazine’s March 2016 issue.

Hosted by comedians Claire Hooper and Mel Buttle, THE GREAT AUSTRALIAN BAKE OFF has been a huge success for LifeStyle FOOD – the series launch was the highest rating audience for the channel ever, with subsequent episodes continuing to break viewing records.

THE GREAT AUSTRALIAN BAKE OFF is a FremantleMedia Australia production for Foxtel based on a format created by Love Productions and broadcast by the BBC in the United Kingdom.
