What do they win on Bake Off: The Professionals?

You would expect some form of a prize at the end of the competition, or at least compensation for the amount of stress the bakers are put under…

Do they win anything on Great British Bake Off?

The winners of Great British Bake Off do not get any cash prizes either. It’s just a bouquet of flowers, a glass of champagne and a pat on the back.

Contestants become beloved by the nation and land sweet TV deals or food columns – like Bake Off: The Professional’s very own Liam Charles!
