Great British Bake off: ‘Ice cream cake in this heat, there should be laws against this!’ Lottie is eliminated after her ‘terrible’ showstopper fails to impress judges on hottest day of year
Lottie Bedlow became the latest contestant to be eliminated on Tuesday’s episode of The Great British Bake Off.
The pantomime producer, 31, failed to impress the judges with her ice cream cake showstopper on the hottest day of the year.
Calling her bake ‘underwhelming’ and ‘terrible’, Lottie was left both ‘relived’ and ‘gutted’ over her exit from the tent.
Exit: Lottie Bedlow became the latest contestant to be eliminated on Tuesday’s episode of The Great British Bake Off
Tuesday’s episode followed an 80s theme which saw the contestants tasked with creating quiches, custard and jam finger doughnuts and an ice cream cake showstopper.
Yet Lottie’s ambitious plans for a chocolate mixtape-shaped ice cream cake was thwarted due to the heat in the tent on one of the hottest days of the year.
Despite warning the contestant over her creation, Lottie decided to pursue with her showstopper which didn’t freeze in time and was left melting.
During the judging feedback, judge Paul Hollywood said he was ‘very underwhelmed’ over the ice cream cake.
And things didn’t get better during the tasting, where he commented: ‘It looks terrible, I think if it had tasted good. I’m just getting nothing from it at all, it’s a shame.’
While co-judge Prue Leith was kinder with her words as she said the chocolate ice cream layer was ‘delicious’.
The contestant also caused a stirred with her breakfast-themed quiches as Prue admitted that she wasn’t a fan of baked beans.
Talking after her exit, Lottie admitted that she was both ‘relived’ and ‘gutted’ over her exit from the tent.
