Nadiya Hussain takes things up a baking gear as she turns her attention to stunning celebration bakes. Having won The Great British Bake Off and baked the Queen’s 90th birthday cake, Nadiya is a true expert when it comes to elaborate cakes to mark a special occasion. First up is a spectacular eight-layered honey cake with a heart on top that has birthday written all over it. At a glance this bake looks fiendish, but with Nadiya’s fool-proof tips and tricks, it is achievable for even the novice baker.\n\nNext is Nadiya’s sparkly king cake - enriched dough filled with a luxurious praline cream, inspired by the New Orleans Mardi Gras and so perfect for a party. In this episode, Nadiya also turns her attention to the religious calendar, as she shares her recipe for the ultimate hot cross buns. With a pink cross on top and stuffed full of jam, these buns are so delightful they could be baked and enjoyed at any time of the year!\n\nAnd for the series finale, Nadiya wows with a spectacular Swedish biscuit tower. Decorated in edible flowers, and with a stash of chocolates hidden inside, it is the ultimate festive centrepiece.\n\nNadiya also showcases the extraordinary skills of Nastassja Lusengo, whose jaw-dropping wedding cakes are like works of art.
