I got a DM from a mate demanding I watch the French version of Bake Off. He said: "The Halloween special has some of the most disturbing items." He's not wrong. This was the technical challenge. M6 / Via 6play.fr These are witch fingers, perfect for Halloween. And I thought making jaffa cakes on British Bake Off, when you can easily go to the shops, is WTF enough. M6 / Via 6play.fr Needless to say the bakers looked thrilled when they were told that they had to bake these. M6 / Via 6play.fr You could feel the excitement in the room. M6 / Via 6play.fr Then it came to the judging, and the reactions were stronger than what Paul, Mary or Prue have ever given. M6 / Via 6play.fr This one didn't do too badly but they really should have toned it down slightly with the nail polish. M6 / Via 6play.fr And then it was time for the Showstopper Challenge. Holy shit. M6 / Via 6play.fr It is supposed to look like a head exploded. Oh BTW: they sliced this cake like this.

M6 / Via 6play.fr One person baked a coffin like this. M6 / Via 6play.fr And another baker made a cake like this. M6 / Via 6play.fr And it looked like this when it was opened. M6 / Via 6play.fr OK, you win. Why are they doing this to themselves? M6 / Via 6play.fr How are they supposed to judge the cake if it looks like something died in it? Not exactly sure what is going on with this bake. M6 / Via 6play.fr Oh by the way, when you cut it open a hell of a lot of fake eyeballs fall out, which is just lovely. M6 / Via 6play.fr Not sure this one deserves a Hollywood handshake. Another decided to decorate their bake with maggots. M6 / Via 6play.fr Mon dieu. I did more digging, and I realised this isn't the first time that they have done a Halloween style challenge on Le Meilleur Patissier. This is a standout one from last year. M6 / Via 6play.fr None are as good as this one. And when I mean 'good', I mean "WHAT THE FUCK?!" Happy baking! M6 / Via 6play.fr Thanks to @Rob_Watts who alerted me to this.
