The Great Wisconsin Baking Challenge Kicks Off Saturday, June 10

Wisconsin Public Television’s first-ever Great Wisconsin Baking Challenge invites you to bake along with The Great British Baking Show, Season 4

Bake along with Britain’s best — and add a Wisconsin twist! Starting Saturday, June 10, Wisconsin Public Television invites The Great British Baking Show fans, baking enthusiasts and anyone who wants to sweeten up their summer to enter our virtual tent for The Great Wisconsin Baking Challenge. The Great Wisconsin Baking Challenge is a fun, free baking adventure open to all ages and skill levels.

Season 4 of the international phenomenon The Great British Baking Show premieres across the WPT viewing area 6 p.m. Sunday, June 18. The Great Wisconsin Baking Challenge runs parallel to the program each week, with baking challenges that relate to each episode. With each challenge, we invite people to share their baking results via an online submission form. Whether you can build a showstopper with your eyes shut or are trying a Paul Hollywood recipe for the first time, we want to see your best attempts at greatness — even if they fall flat.

The Great Wisconsin Baking Challenge isn’t a competition: Participants are simply encouraged to try something new and share their baking victories and misadventures. Submissions will be featured each week on

The first challenge inspired by the June 18 premiere episode, “Cake” – will be announced June 10. Look for details of each baking prompt on the official website at After each prompt is announced, participants are encouraged to fill out a short form on the website and share their project’s progress on social media using the #WisconsinBakingChallenge hashtag.

Throughout the 10-part challenge, WPT will feature bakers on the website, as well as in weekly blog posts and on social media. This summer, everyone is welcome under WPT’s virtual tent, so get ready to try new techniques and let your creations shine!
