In the TV show The Great British Bake Off, contestants are set a number of challenges. For example in the final they had to create:
- A picnic pie
- Two types of pretzels
- A wedding cake
A lot of the finalists had difficulty with the pretzels because they hadn't done them before and didn't know the process. This indicates that they are told what to make and sent away to bake immediately.
However for both the wedding cake and pie, Kimberly had the opportunity to go find tools. So either she happened to have a both a pig shaped cutter in her bench and a stencil with the word "love" in fifty languages (very unlikely), or she'd had advance warning of the final challenge.
Do the contestants know what they're going to be baking in advance of the show?
