And another bloodied bake featured a knife already stuck in it, which is removed to access sweet treats.
It was up to the French Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith (Cyril Lignac and Jacqueline Mercorelli) to choose which wholly unappealing bake was the winner.

During the final, the contestants will be in the tent for the showstopper and the signature challenge, which will see the trio tackle doughnuts (hopefully their efforts are far more appetising than what was offered on The Apprentice).
But Channel 4 has not given any details of the task or the location for the technical, apart from saying it is “deceptively simple”.
However, some viewers have accused fan-favourite Rahul of ‘cheating’ after the 30-year-old was caught continuing to decorate his bakes after time was up.
Host Sandi Toksvig has since weighed in on the criticism, calling Rahul charming.
“He’s a really charming man with very little self-confidence and an astonishing talent,” she explained. “Everybody is doing their best. These are not telly people. These are people who have decided to put themselves forward to do something that they are passionate about. So, I would hate for there to be a backlash against anybody.”
The Great British Bake Off concludes Tuesday at 8pm on Channel 4.
