Re-live the best bits from last night's Bake Off final...

After ten weeks of sweat, toil and tears, the Great British Bake Off has finally come to a controversial close. Nobody saw dark horse, Frances, coming up the inside. But her ability to match her astounding creativity with equally fantastic flavours saw her bag the coveted Bake Off trophy.

The judges chose some particularly unusual signature and technical bakes for the final show – a traditional picnic pie and tricky American pretzels. Predictably, Ruby rose to the challenge producing a sumptuous vegetarian picnic pie and second place-worthy pretzels.

It seemed like she had the win in the piping bag, but then came the showstopper challenge – a three-tier wedding cake. This challenge had Frances written all over it; a celebration cake where the mind could run riot when it came to decoration.

Surprisingly, Frances didn’t overcomplicate it. Her contemporary, stylish wedding cake saw her sale to victory, but it was definitely a close call.
