​The Prize For Winning The Great British Bake Off May Surprise You

You would think that winning Great British Bake Off after weeks of hard work tent would mean you get an automatic money prize and a spin-off baking show, but this isn't the case.

It has been revealed that winners of the UK's favourite baking show are just given a cake stand and a bouquet of flowers.

It means the star bakers are free to do what they want once they leave the tent, and it is up to them to work to get their own spin-off shows.

However, what they may lack in prizes, the winners make up for it with the exposure from the show.

Edd Kimber, the first winner of the Bake Off was exposed to 3 million viewers and went on to work at Raymond Blanc's famous pastry kitchen after winning the first Bake Off series

His debut book made him £150,000, and his further two publications earned £100,000 on top of that, although the baker only took a £37,500 cut.

The most successful winner of the series is undoubtedly Nadiya Hussain who has become a cooking sensation.

Nadiya has written a bestselling cookery book, has two columns in national magazines and newspapers, she is a guest presenter on Loose Women, and was selected to bake Queen Elizabeth II's birthday cake when the monarch turned 90 - all from winning a cake stand and bouquet.

The Great British Bake Off launched on Tuesday and viewers weren't disappointed as it kept its innuendo led humour when baker Dale created a suspiciously rude looking biscuit selfie.

During the showstopper challenge, the contestants were asked to create a selfie portrait of themselves in a memorable place or moment.

Dan decided to recreate the special moment where he met his child for the first time in Palm Springs.

However, the finished selfie made it look like he was holding something completely different to the baby he had intended to replicate.

Fellow baker Kim Joy was the first person to point out that the baby actually looked like a penis.

While judge Paul Hollywood might have agreed, he refused to say it looked slightly phallic, and instead compared it to a 'massive prawn'.

However, viewers weren't afraid to point out the rude comparison on Twitter, branding it the 'biscuit penis'.

One said: "Anyone else think that baby looks like a penis??"

Another added: "Dan's first born looks like he's cradling a little pink penis."
