Cape Town – Season 2 of The Great South African Bake Off kicks off tonight at 20:00 on BBC Lifestyle.

12 new bakers will take to the kitchen to compete for the crown of best amateur baker.

With trepidation, excitement and a spoonful of nerves, the  bakers enter the pressurised environment of the Bake Off tent for the very first time.

Judged by Shirley Guy and Tjaart Walraven, episode 1 is all about cakes – starting with a signature bake challenge to create the perfect glazed madeira loaf cake, followed by a technical bake challenge to make bee sting cake.

Finally, the pressure is on and the clock is ticking for the showstopper challenge to create a black forest gateau.

Who will be crowned the first star baker of the season and who will be eliminated from the tent?

Tune in for all the baking drama tonight at 20:00 on BBC Lifestyle (DStv 174).
