Stop what you’re doughing, cancel all your flans, the Bio-Bodies Bake-Off is back for 2017!

GBBO is now back on our screens, and love it or hate it, you can’t deny some of those ‘illusion cakes’ were pretty unbelievable – but The Physiological Society think you can do better!

Biology Week (Saturday 7 to Sunday 15 October, 2017) is on the horizon, and we are celebrating with our annual physiology cake decorating competition.

We are inviting you to make a bake, savoury or sweet, representing physiology, the science of how your body works. If you can impress our cake judges you could be in with a chance of winning some great prizes! For more information, including a downloadable information sheet and posters for your school or workplace, visit our website

You can browse through previous entries on twitter using hashtag #BioBakes, take a look at our Facebook albums (Biobakes photos: 201420152016) of previous entries, or check out some of the staff’s favourite bakes from over the years on our blog (Game of Thrones fans look out for the white walker).

Key dates:

  • Submission deadline: 5pm Friday 6 October 2017
  • Public Vote: Thursday 12 & Friday 13 October 2017
  • Announcement: 4pm Friday 13 October

On your marks, get bready, bake!
