The Great Australian Bake Off

Seven of the most breath-taking cakes ever made on The Great Australian Bake Off

From Sian’s cuckoo clock to Claudia's croquembouche cockatoo, take a look back at some of the past bakers' finest moments.

If you're looking forward to the series four premiere of The Great Australian Bake Off, you'll love reminiscing about the past bakers and their magnificent creations.

Barb's Crepe Cake

Series three contestant, Barb loved experimenting with new things, as well as perfecting the classics her family loved her to make. Baking her stunning Ombre Crepe Cake was certainly a time when she extended herself, developing a gorgeous mauve ombre cake studded with blueberries and held together with lemon cream cheese. Divine!

Claudia's Cockatoo

The showstopper that stole the show in series three was from Bake Off winner, Claudia. Her jaw-dropping choux and nougatine crafted Cockatoo was incredibly time-intensive, but the baker put her head down, got baking and emerged with a spectacular, multi-faceted masterpiece.

Dave's Floating Elegance cake

Series three contestant, Dave had such a fine eye for detail and created many fabulous wedding cakes before his time in The Shed. We're so glad he got to show off his wedding cake skills on the show, as he added a touch of magic with his floating, three-tiered wedding cake.

Monica's Babka-rama

Baking isn't just about cakes, it's also about desserts and breads and pastries, too! Monica demonstrated her flair for all kinds of baking during series two, creating some wonderful creations. It's hard to pick one, but if we had to, her Babka-rama was so impressive to look at, and the judges were blown away by the details.

Olivia's Schichttorte

Series two winner, Olivia, certainly impressed week after week with her flavours, love of texture and amazing presentation. While she made many decadent desserts, one that sticks out is the Schichttorte - a multi-layered showstopper with a choc-orange flavour.

Suzy's Church

This was always a very special bake for season one's Suzy, as she always sought to add that very personal touch to her creations. Based on her wedding day, this sweet surprse is called Never Ending Love - and truly defined the meaning of a showstopper 

Sian's Biscuit Clock

Who could forget this masterpiece from series one of Bake Off? Series one winner, Sian made this incredible creation look so easy, as she deftly assembled all of the biscuit pieces and used a steady hand to decorate. The Black Forest Cuckooo Clock is topped with maraschino cherries, black cherries and edible gold leaf and was truly something special.

The Great Australian Bake Off returns to Foxtel's Lifestyle on Thursday, October 3 at 8.30pm.
