The ultimate baking contest. In the countdown to Christmas, THE GREAT BRITISH BAKING SHOW judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood are getting festive in the kitchen. They have six brand new recipes to bake for the family this festive season, inspired by rich traditions from all over Europe.

Paul kicks off the baking with St. Lucia buns, which are saffron buns traditionally eaten throughout Advent in Scandinavia.

He puts a twist on the traditional mince pie, making a mincemeat and marzipan couronne, while Mary makes a French galette and offers alternatives to traditional Christmas cake and Christmas pudding. She makes a fruit-filled genoa cake and white chocolate and stem ginger cheesecake. The baking is topped off by Paul's kransekake – a spectacular tower of rings of delicate mixture that will bring everyone to the table.
