Week 8: Wisconsin Week
Starts: Monday, July 31, 2017
Ends: Sunday, August 20, 2017
The Great British Baking Show has Tudor Week, so naturally, The Great Wisconsin Baking Challenge has Wisconsin Week!
There are plenty of opportunities to add a Wisconsin twist to your creation — and this challenge, that twist is more important than ever. This is a week to showcase your Wisconsin pride!
Week 8: Wisconsin Week Challenges
You only need to select one to participate.
Signature Challenge — Mini Pies
Make mini pies of any flavor! Presentation is key here: The pies have to be individually made, but the key is to be creative in your display. In addition to selecting your flavors, bonus "points" for anyone who adds a Wisconsin touch to their arrangement!
These are traditional, intricately shaped (typically shaped into Celtic knots) Tudor biscuits that contain mace, anise and caraway. We encourage you to find a traditional Jumble recipe, but use your local ingredients and creativity to make it a Wisconsin original!
Yes, really! If you are feeling ambitious, this is the challenge for you! Your marzipan must be made from scratch, and your centerpiece must be entirely edible; the rest is up to you. This is a great opportunity to let your creativity shine!
Each week, we’ll issue three baking challenges based on the upcoming new episode of The Great British Baking Show — this way you’ll have a chance to test yourself against the show's contestants as you watch. However, you will only have to select one of our three challenges to bake. Then we'd like you to add a "Wisconsin twist" to your recipe or decoration. Be creative!
We are currently not taking submissions for this challenge.
