Great British Bake Off: Dave Friday from Waterlooville impresses with tiramisu chocolate cake
Lottie Bedlow, from Littlehampton, has been eliminated from The Great British Bake Off during an episode which saw the contestants take on a number of 1980s-themed challenges.
The 31-year-old pantomime producer failed to impress in the final round of the episode, which saw the amateur bakers tackling an ice cream cake.
The contestants were tasked with making quiches, finger doughnuts and ice cream cakes and Hermine was named star baker.
Hot weather conditions during filming of the episode, which took place over the summer, caused many of the contestants problems and Lottie failed to get an ice cream coating for her cake to set.
She said her effort was ‘quite frankly an embarrassment’.
Judge Paul Hollywood said: ‘I think it looks terrible, if it tasted good then you sort of hang something on that, but besides the puff rice down the bottom, I’m just not getting anything from it all. Nothing.’
After being eliminated from the programme, she said: ‘It is just a massive relief but also I’m gutted to not be with everyone every day.
‘Honestly it has been amazing.
‘I literally packed two outfits and I’m here in week seven wearing everyone else’s clothes.
‘I can’t believe the stuff I have done, I got a handshake, I got star baker, I’m so chuffed with myself and maybe I can bake.’
Dave, 30, narrowly avoided elimination after failing to impress impress with his quiches and finishing bottom in the technical challenge.
However, he clawed it back in the ice cream cake round with his tiramisu chocolate cake, which impressed the judges.
