‘The Great British Bake Off’ is set to get a spin-off show, which will see top pastry chefs competing against each other to create the best desserts.

‘Bake Off: Creme De La Creme’ (see what they did there?) will be presented by Michelin-starred chef Tom Kerridge and will see fifteen teams of professional chefs producing impressive miniatures and show stopper desserts.
According to the BBC, the eight-part series will be shown on BBC Two next year.
Teams of three will be made up of chefs from famous hotels, top restaurants and patisseries, as well as the development kitchens of leading supermarkets, the armed forces and private clubs.
But instead of Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood casting an eye over their efforts, they’ll be judged by three of the industry's most influential pastry chefs - Benoit Blin from Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons, Cherish Finden from The Langham Hotel in London and Claire Clark who has twice been named Britain's best pastry chef.
Love Productions, who produce ‘Bake Off’, have promised tension and drama as the chefs work together to show off their skills and creativity.
The winner will be the team who displays "the precision of surgeons, the knowledge of chemists and the creativity of artists".
Last month, it was revealed that Paul Hollywood had landed himself a job presenting another baking show.
The new series, ‘Paul Hollywood’s City Bakes’ will see him jetting off to locations all over Europe and North America, and checking out what each country has to offer in the way of baking.
