Bake Off is already on week six, and the show has been delighting fans across the UK.

The sixth episode saw the contestants create some spooky themed bakes, as Halloween approaches.

But who got the trick and who got the treat? Here’s everything you need to know.

What happened in week 6?

Episode 5 was a spooky special, as the contestants were asked to create some Halloween themed bakes.

Sadly, the baker to leave the tent in Halloween week was Dawn, a 60-year-old IT Manager from Bedfordshire.

This week’s showstopper saw the contestants create a hanging lantern, which could be smashed like a piñata, out of whatever bake they fancied.

Dawn created ‘A Cat In A Fancy Hat’ lantern, but it failed to impress.

Paul believed it was “basic and simple, although Prue praised the jelly eyes.

They were also asked to make an apple pie, and the technical was s’mores, in which Dawn placed fifth.

She became the sixth baker to leave after Will, Maisam, James, Rebs and Carole.

She said: “I really don’t want to shed tears over this because it’s been the best experience of my life.

“I can’t wish for more than that. I’m really proud of what I’ve done. I’m so proud.”

Syabira, a 32-year-old cardiovascular research associate from London, took Star Baker this week, after impressing the judges with her lantern and technical, and Maxy received a handshake from Paul.

Abdul came last in the technical. Afterwards he admitted he got a little carried away when toasting the marshmallows, saying: “(What) I needed to do was lightly use the burner but I (superheated them).”

What happened in week 5?

The first challenge saw the bakers create eight signature steamed puddings, served with an accompaniment of their choice, of which Hollywood warned the contestants: “The beauty of steamed puddings is the moisture, so the last thing you want to see is a dry sponge.”

Carole struggled with the challenge as she failed to correctly cook the dish, leaving her with eight collapsed puddings. Attempting to look on the brighter side, she joked with the judges: “I know you said no more disasters but I think I’ve done this one in style.”

In the technical challenge, the contestants were tasked with making a lemon meringue pie.

Despite her best efforts, Carole once again failed to impress the judges and found herself towards the bottom of the rankings.

In one last attempt to remain in the competition, Carole opted to make a strawberry fields showstopper after the contestants were asked to create “a visually spectacular mousse-based dessert with a surprise inside”, which also needed at least another three dessert-based elements, one of which had to be baked.

Judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith decided Carole’s time on the show had come to an end, sending her home. Carole once again remained positive, saying: “I’m very proud of myself. I came here to achieve something as I get older.”

Meanwhile, it was good news for 30-year-old nanny, Sandro, who was awarded the coveted Star Baker title for the first time after impressing with his port and cherry crumble steamed puddings in the technical challenge and later wowing them with his “It’s A Mousse World” showstopper.

Also celebrating during Tuesday evening’s show was 31-year-old two-time star baker Janusz who secured the top spot in the technical challenge after nailing his lemon meringue pie.

What happened in week 4?

Episode four brought a new twist to the show, as contestants were challenged to bake Mexican-themed treats, starting a with pan dulce, a sweet bun.

Rebs, James and supermarket cashier Carole, 59, came bottom of the technical challenge, which saw the bakers whip up steak tacos with guacamole.

The challenge raised eyebrows online for appearing to put the contestants’ cooking, rather than baking, skills to the test.

The programme returned to more familiar territory, as the bakers were asked to produce Tres Leches cakes for the showstopper round.

While Carole improved, Rebs and James’ attempts were not up to standard. Their milk-soaked sponges were difficult to stack, drawing criticism for poor presentation.

Maxy was crowned Star Baker, while James and Rebs – who bursts into tears – were sent home.

“Bake Off has been a fabulous experience, it’s just I didn’t want it to be cut this short. I am gutted for James as well, he is such a fabulous person,” Rebs said.

Prue explained: “Poor Rebs, but her flavours were just too strong, and too many of them.

“I am always sad to see bakers go, but particularly James. He had a rotten week and his showstopper was a real disappointment.”

Paul added: “It’s hard in this tent, and next week we are halfway through.”

What happened in week 3?

Rebecca and Abdul were forced to pull out of filming due to sickness, so did not appear. The bakers were told that none of them would be going home that week.

Matt Lucas said: “Both Rebs and Abdul are a bit under the weather this week, but with your permission, we thought we’d send them both straight through to the final.”

Noel Fielding added: “Only joking, they’re going to miss a week and hopefully they’ll be back next week.”

Pizzas were on the menu for the signature challenge, while the technical saw the competitors clash over pain au raisin. The showstopper was a savoury bread cake, with fillings and decorations.

A star baker was still announced, with the top prize going to Janusz for a second time.

After baking an unconventional “Full English” breakfast pizza, complete with egg, black pudding, bacon, he wowed the judges during the technical challenge with a Scandi sandwich cake filled with fish, chips and mushy peas, topped with curry sauce.

What happened in week 2?

Week 2’s signature challenge saw the bakers making “illusion macarons” – which essentially means a macaron that doesn’t look like a macaron. Dawn and Maxy received the first Hollywood handshake of the series, for their quirky daisy and yoyo-shaped bakes.

For the technical challenge, the contestants were asked to rustle up the classic Garibaldi biscuit – but this time they had to add a chocolate twist, courtesy of Prue’s wicked meddling. Unfortunately, many bakers found this heat of the episode particularly challenging due to Prue’s vague instruction to “feather” the white chocolate.

The 90-minute episode finally came to a dramatic crescendo with the showstopper challenge, when bakers were tasked with the bizarre mission to bake a 3D biscuit mask.

Maxy managed to secure the title of star baker, however, sadly it was all a bit too much for Maisam, who was eliminated after a frenzied panic during the showstopper left her with a broken biscuit mask.

“I think I am definitely feeling proud as I am only 18 so this is not the end of my baking journey – this is where it starts,” Maisam said upon her exit.

“I can definitely say that this experience has been life changing because it has taught me to dream bigger and never underestimate baking because it can definitely take you places.”
