    41 Beautiful Bakes That Former "Great British Bake Off" Contestants Have Posted On Social Media

    Not a soggy bottom in sight!

    I don't know about you, but I'm positively thrilled that Great British Bake Off returns this week — the new season premieres today in the UK, with the new episodes coming to Netflix in the US on Fridays.

    In honor of the show's return, I was checking back in with the quarterfinalists from all 10 seasons of the show on Instagram, which proved (pun intended) to be an absolutely delightful activity.

    If you're in the US, that means there are spoilers, since seasons 1 and 2 aren't available on Netflix yet — so if you don't want to know who makes the quarterfinals on those seasons, you've been warned.
