Bake Off The Professionals Season 5 Episode 03 Description
Liam Charles and Stacey Solomon welcome back the best teams from last week for chocolate week. In their first challenge, the teams must make 24 chocolate cylindrical desserts and 24 desserts celebrating the honeybee. For the showpiece challenge, the teams construct dramatic chocolate showpieces along with 48 chocolate bars, which includes a moving part, inspired by the theme of ancient mythology, all in just five hours.
Chocolate week has been many a patissier’s nemesis. It’s a tricky substance to work with because it can get stuck in the moulds, melt, snap or simply look dull. So it’s a tense time for the remaining pastry chefs as they get to work on an ancient mythology showpiece fashioned from the dark stuff and featuring a moving part.
First, though, they’re making rather a lot of desserts celebrating the honeybee. While they’ve been delighting us with their confections, new presenter Stacey Solomon has divided viewers. Turns out she’s not everybody’s cup of tea — even if it’s served with a nice French sablé biscuit.
