The big baking 2020: who is the winner? Who won the final?

Ten hobby bakers faced the jury's verdict in a new season of "The Big Baking" on SAT.1. In each episode there were three tasks waiting for the candidates. At the end of each episode, a candidate had to leave the show. Here you can read one by one who made it how far and who won in the end.

Episode 8 - Final (December 20th, 2020)

The last broadcast of the eighth season is themed Metallic. Four instead of three candidates made it to the final of "The Big Baking". Therefore, one of the four hobby bakers has to go after the technical exam and is no longer allowed to take the final exam. After the "Mousse Medals" in bronze, silver and gold it hits Jennifer. It ends up in fourth place.

Even more TV and streaming tips, celebrity interviews and attractive competitions: We'll send you our newsletter from the editorial team every Friday to kick off the weekend.

At the end, the finalists have to conjure up a double cake with a golden coating. In the end, the title goes to Laura. She gets the "Golden Cupcake", 10,000 euros and her own baking book. In addition, the title "Germany's best hobby baker 2020". That is a bit surprising, after all, Laura was never "baker of the week" before. But in the final it obviously convinced the expert jury the most.

Semi-finals in "The Big Baking" and this time the motto is Sweden. And what could be more Swedish than crispbread? The first task of the day is hearty, but in the technical test it is sweet: a princessndentorte is required. Sara ends up in fourth and last place, Jennifer is awarded the best performance by the jury. At the end, the candidates are given the nice task of baking motif cakes based on the Astrid Lindgren motto. Despite finishing last in the technical test, Sara made it to the final as "Baker of the Week" thanks to a sensational cake. Then the surprise: the other three are also on. The jury could not make up its mind again ...

These candidates are in the final:

  • Barbara
  • Jennifer
  • Sara
  • Laura

Episode 6 (December 6th, 2020)

The sixth episode goes to Italy. At the beginning, the candidates should reinterpret the famous dessert tiramisú. Cantuccini are on the program for the technical exam. And finally, the Riviera serves as an inspiration for the Motov cakes. Steve, who had previously picked up the red apron in the show, only ended up in fifth and last place in the technical test and his Tiramisú variant also has weaknesses. After all, he can score with the motif cake. He's got rid of the red apron anyway, this time Jennifer is the baker of the week. His strong performance in the last task doesn't even save Steve from being knocked out. When he said goodbye, a few tears flowed ...

These candidates are still there:

  • Barbara
  • Jennifer
  • Laura
  • Sara

Episode 5 (November 29, 2020)

The destination of the culinary trip to Europe this time is Denmark. In the first task, the candidates are largely given a free hand. Your pastry creation just has to be "typically Danish". Aebleskivers are required in the technical test, i.e. pancake balls with an apple filling. Here Barbara convinced the jury the most, Laura's balls, on the other hand, are easily burnt. The last task requires sensitivity; candidates must make a mirror-glaze cake, i.e. a cake with a "glass" dome made of isomalt. Thanks to the best performance in this task, Steve gets the red apron for the best baker of the week. The end of the line is for Dirk, who struggled with all three tasks.

These candidates are still there:

  • Barbara
  • Jennifer
  • Laura
  • Sara
  • Steve

Episode 4 (November 22, 2020)

In the trip to Europe this time, the Low Countries are on the itinerary. First, the candidates have to bake a Vlaai, then in the technical examination puff pastry pieces called Tompoce and finally a cake that is said to be inspired by a painting by the famous artist Vincent van Gogh. Laura completely messes up the technical exam, she doesn't finish. But the other two tasks save her. "The big baking" is over for Christoph, who couldn't convince. The red apron for the best performance of the week goes to Barbara.

These candidates are still there:

  • Barbara
  • Dirk
  • Jennifer
  • Laura
  • Sara
  • Steve

Episode 3 (November 15, 2020)

The third episode is very British, because the motto is Great Britain. So the candidates first have to bake a hearty pie. Shanya is pretty wrong here. In the technical test it should be a biscuit cake with a "hidden design", namely the Union Jack. Some candidates find it easier to use the British flag than others. Sara ends up in eighth and last place, Jennifer and Shanya share second place. Because she is not completely satisfied with any of the works, the jury refrained from awarding first place. A bit of a strange understanding of competition, but good ... Last but not least, candidates have to make 3D cakes. There are teacups, double-decker buses and Big Ben. Jennifer gets back the red apron for the best baker of the week. "The Big Baking" is over for Shanya. Despite the good technical test, the jury gave her the weakest performance of the week.

These candidates are still there:

  • Barbara
  • Christoph
  • Dirk
  • Jennifer
  • Laura
  • Sara
  • Steve

Episode 2 (November 8th, 2020)

The second episode goes to France, at least in culinary terms. The tasks on the program are tarts, eclairs (technical examination) and macarons. This time there are two first places in the technical test: Dirk and Laura convince the jury equally. In last place, however, is Barbara, who also takes the wrong way with the macarons: she fills them with buttercream. It doesn't really belong in there. But things are not going according to plan with Vanessa either. She cannot convince in any of the three tasks and has to leave at the end of the show. Dirk gets the red apron for the baker of the week.

These candidates are still there:

  • Barbara
  • Christoph
  • Dirk
  • Jennifer
  • Laura
  • Sara
  • Shanya
  • Steve

Episode 1 (1.11.2020)

As always at the beginning, the candidates can present their favorite recipes to the jury in task 1. In the first technical test of the new season, the task is "Frankfurter Kranz". Shanya takes the top spot here, while Sara lands in last place. Can she make up for that in the third task, the motto cake? The jury judged Jennifer to have the best overall performance, she was convincing in all three tasks. The decision of who has to leave "Das große Backen" after the first episode is made between Sara and Silvia. It hits Silvia. She's out.

Next are these nine candidates:

  • Barbara
  • Christoph
  • Dirk
  • Jennifer
  • Laura
  • Sara
  • Shanya
  • Steve
  • Vanessa

Who are the candidates?

Ten hobby bakers want to put their baking skills to the test in the eighth season:

  • Barbara (38) from Lungau (Austria)
    For the coach driver, inner values ​​count: a cake that just looks good is out of the question for Barbara. "My great strength is improvising - when things don't go according to plan."
  • Christoph (31) from Jena
    The art historian likes to bake down-to-earth classics that he learned from his grandmother. If he wins, he wants to dedicate the win to his grandma. "This is this moment that I have been working towards for twelve months."
  • Dirk (45) from Weinheim
    In the Backzelt, the business economist wants to bring his sense of order and aesthetics to perfection and bring titles to Weinheim. "On an excitement scale from one to ten, I'm a good 12!"
  • Jennifer (34) from Schwarzenberg
    The hobby baker gets her family, job and baking under one roof, even if she's in the kitchen until four at night. "Only when I start talking to the fondant figures is it time to go to bed."
  • Laura (29) from Mülheim / Ruhr
    The HR manager has set up her own baking room to conjure up her cake works of art. "There is still something going on!" is her baking motto.
  • Sara (31), from Castrop-Rauxel
    The make-up artist likes to be inspired by the desserts of her Lebanese background - preferably in her favorite color pink. "I want to convince with optics and clean cake work," she says.
  • Shanya (31) from Solingen
    Her Sri Lankan roots are also reflected in her cakes. "I like to play with ingredients like cardamom and cinnamon, which make the recipes a little more interesting."
  • Steve (34) from Dresden
    Baking is in the blood of the surgical technician (OTA): he started experimenting with sweets with aunt and grandma at an early age. "I think I could go relatively far because I can do a wide range of things."
  • Silvia (46) from Tann
    "I bring more life and baking experience with me because I've been baking a few years longer." The enterprising power woman only uses recipes as inspiration - "I bake my thing!"
  • Vanessa (23) from Delmenhorst
    There is no party at which the teacher training student with a soft spot for Harry Potter does not open a thematically matching 3D cake. But: "I am totally self-critical."
