Angus Deayton hosts the search for Britain's best team of pastry chefs. The pastry competition returns in a revamped knockout format, as five teams battle to stay in the competition and make it through to the next heat in their half of the draw. The teams are put through two testing challenges in just 36 hours, presided over by returning judges Benoit Blin and Cherish Finden. The first challenge demands that the teams make 36 identical moka au cafe slices and 36 identical napoleons, in just three hours. The second challenge demands that they each make an extraordinary showpiece dessert by reinventing the classic peach melba in just four hours. The team with the lowest total score at the end of the final challenge leaves the competition.
It is the second heat of the first leg of the competition and judges Benoit and Cherish want more miniatures - 36 uniform eclairs and 36 identical mont blancs. For their showpiece, the teams are tasked with making arguably the most important cake of one's life - a gateau de mariage. But when the final points are tallied, one team will have to leave.

This time, it is the pavlova, the iconic dish inspired by a legendary ballerina, which see the teams strive to create meringue-based masterpieces, as elegant as they are delicious. But at the end of the two days, who will win enough points to progress to the next heat and which team must deal with the disappointment of exiting the competition at this early stage?
The four remaining teams of professional pastry chefs must master petit gateau, creating 36 identical petite charlottes and 36 shaped macarons in just two hours. For their final challenge, the teams must put an innovative spin on the classic towering French celebration cake, the croquembouche. Who can reach new heights and create a skyscraping choux bun showpiece in just four hours and who will face a dramatic fall from grace and the disappointment of leaving the competition?
