Gluten Free Magic Bake Off – Week Five Roundup

The Bake Off tent was once again shaken by some shocking news this week, as we learnt that Mary Berry, bastion of baking and queen of the soggy bottom, would not be continuing on as a judge in the new Channel 4 edition of GBBO. Paul Hollywood, however, decided to “go with the dough”, accepting a three-year deal with the show.

Needless to say, this led to some rather heated debate here at Delicious Alchemy HQ (#TeamMary forever) but what we can all agree on is how fantastic our GFMBO bakers have been this week – and indeed every week!

It was a real struggle choosing winners, but we managed to narrow it down to these brilliant bakes.
