Season 2, Episode 8: Finale Week
The last three bakers return to the tent for the final showdown
The last three bakers returned to the tent for the final showdown. And all three of them pulled out all the stops.
After eight weeks of amazing creations and heartbreaking disappointments, Sachin, Megan and Andrei were the final three bakers left in the tent. But before one could be crowned the winner of Season 2, they would each have to create an innovative take on the classic Swiss Roll, make a complex marzipan-topped cake for the technical challenge and build an elaborate choux pastry sculpture.

For the technical bake, the bakers had to make a Swedish Princess Cake, a marzipan-topped, dome-shaped layer cake, beloved by Scandinavian royalty in the early 20th Century.
While all three bakers impressed with their creations, Andrei's tribute to French Patisserie — a choux pastry tower, which also included an elaborate sugar work cone — nudged him over the top, making him this season's winner.
Sachin also impressed the judges with his Neapolitan Swiss Rolls.
