The Great British Bake Off, often referred to as Bake Off or GBBO, is a British television baking competition which selects from amongst its contestants the best amateur baker. The series was presented by Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins, and judged by cookery writer Mary Berry and professional baker Paul Hollywood. It was first shown on BBC Two in August 2010, and after becoming the most popular programme on that channel was moved to BBC One for its fifth series. The show has become a significant part of British culture and is credited with reinvigorating interest in baking throughout the United Kingdom. Many of its participants, including winners, have gone on to start a career based on bakery. A mixing bowl, mixer and ‘cakes ‘ are all on display in this arrangement.
