Mary Berry

Diana Beard had quit the Great British Bake Off following the now infamous 'baked Alaska' incident shown on last night's show (August 27, 2014). However, the BBC said her departure was down to illness and was unrelated to Iain Watters' controversial elimination from the show.

Paul HollywoodPaul Hollywood was not impressed with Iain's non-existent baked alaska

After Frances Quinn Victory, Bake Off Bids Farewell To BBC2


Mary Berry

Sadly for us all, the nation’s favorite reality show, The Great British Bake Off, has come to a close. The ovens have cooled. The winner has been announced. And for once, it wasn’t with garish strobe lights and a confetti shower, but in the quaint tent, out in a field, as per Bake Off’s signature style.

Great British Bake Off, Judges And Hosts
Hopefully next season's move won't bring about any cast changes to upset the balance.

The three remaining contestants Ruby Tandoh, Frances Quinn and Kimberley Wilson were asked to whip up – well, more like patiently labour over – a wedding cake. Quinn wowed judges Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry with a Midsummer Night’s Dream-themed creation, which won her the crown in the end, despite Quinn not being a favorite to begin with. But that was all four months ago – unlike other reality formats, Bake Off wasn’t filmed live. Even now, months after the event, Frances is still thrilled and in disbelief.

Both Kimberley and Ruby opted to got for a basket-shaped pie, with Ruby going for a vegetarian option, whilst Kimberley filled hers with chicken and pork. Kim's creation even had little pink pigs on the pastry too! Frances on the other hand went for something a little more adventurous and created a rainbow picnic pie, made from trout, rice and vegetables. Both Kimberley and Frances were given positive comments from the judges, Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry, but it was Ruby who impressed the pair the most as she was commended for her vegetable bake.
