Four bakers remain in Pie Week, and they must excel with their pastry skills to make the finale
Only four bakers remain in Pie Week and they must excel with their pastry skills in three pie challenges to make it to the finale.
First, they showcased their personalities in the Signature Bake. Then, they took on a tricky French Technical. Finally, they made Showstoppers that had them taking their skills to new heights. The judges selected three bakers to continue to next week's finale, and sent one baker home.

For the Signature Bake, the bakers were asked to make pie-faces, or pies with a face as the decoration.
All four remaining bakers pulled impressive creations out of the oven, but in the end Nataliia's apricot-chili self-portrait stood out from the pack, and helped her win her third Star Baker crown of the season.
For the Technical, the bakers were asked to make a pithivier, a covered French pie filled with jam and frangipane
Unfortunately, Chris struggled with his pie, which played a role in him being sent home from the tent.
For a Showstopper, the bakers made multi-tiered pie towers. The judges were very impressed with Jodi's brunch-for-supper tower, which included a salmon quiche.
