The fifth season of CBC’s The Great Canadian Baking Show (GCBS) returned in October and features Amanda Muirhead of Westmoreland, PEI, as one of the show’s ten amateur bakers. Muirhead will  compete for a chance to win The Great Canadian Baking Show title.

Based on the British format, each episode features the bakers competing in three challenges— the Signature Bake, the Technical Bake, and the Show Stopper—during which they rely on their personal interests and backgrounds to ensure their dishes stand out. Once their creations are tasted and critiqued, the judges decide who is the week’s Star Baker and who will be sent home. In the final episode, the remaining three bakers will face off for the title of Canada’s best amateur baker.

The program celebrates personal achievement and the joy of baking.
