Don't miss tonight's grand final of the BBC2 TV show The Great British Bake Off, filmed at Fulham Palace.

Presented by Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins, better known as comedy duo Mel and Sue, the show has seen passionate home bakers do battle in a bake-off which has tested every aspect of their baking skills.

Tonight, September 21, at 8pm, the last three surviving contestants face their biggest challenge yet – producing the delicacies for the Bake Off’s Afternoon Tea Party in the grounds of the palace.

This time the contestants are baking not only for judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood, but also friends, family and the former Bake Off contestants. None of them have baked on this scale before.

In order to be crowned the victor of the Bake Off they’ll need to bring together all of their skills, making cakes, bread and pastry. Amongst their offerings are miniature ginger mint and blackberry cakes, quiches with red pepper chutney, raspberry ripple choux buns and lemon scones with passion fruit curd.

Best news of all for Fuham folk, the café at the Palace will be celebrating the event by reproducing the winner's recipe in the café for the next week.
