Despite a toppling tower of biscuits, Frances Quinn made it through to another bake off on Tuesday night’s episode of The Great British Bake Off.
Frances who lives in Harborough entered the final stage of the fifth episode with the judges having high hopes of her being star baker.
Earlier in the episode she had impressed with her Millionaires Banoffee Bonus, which was served up to the judges in a jenga style tower.
Mary Berry said that Frances had got both the design and the flavours just right.
Having raised concerns last week that her baking might be style over substance, Frances said that she was pleased to show with her traybake that she had substance over style.
Creating 18 tuile biscuits in the second round, Frances placed third and the judges again complimented both the flavour and the pattern of her bake.
Going into the final round she made a biscuit haberdashery tower. Decorated beautifully with beads and buttons and even a measuring tape, all looked well until in the final minutes the tower took a tumble.
Although she failed to meet the brief, Frances made it through to the final seven.
