As this year's set of hopefuls enter the tent for the very first time, their first Signature Challenge is to make a swiss roll. They then have to face their first ever Technical Challenge which is Mary's recipe for a classic cherry cake. Finally they have to create a classic British cakes in perfect miniature. At the end of the show there is the first elimination.
Mary and Paul plan their Christmas in a festive masterclass. They share their favourite recipes for Christmas including Stollen, Mincemeat Streusel and a Gingerbread House that can be made with help from all the family.
