It was Pastry Week on the Great British Bake Off last night but who left?

After last Wednesday's first ever batter week, Bake Off was back to its roots this evening with pastries.

And Val Stones was the unlucky baker to exit the tent after five weeks.

For the first of the usual three tasks, the signature challenge, it was breakfast time, Danish style as Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood asked the remaining eight bakers to create two different sets of 12 pastries.

Rav Bansal miscounted one half of is bake while Paul didn't even try the second half of Tom Gillford's "bone dry" pastries.

On the other hand, Jane Beedle won "outstanding" praise from the judges and Candice Brown's risk with savoury flavours paid off.

In the technical challenge, Mary asked the bakers to take on a British Bakewell tart with some disastrous results.

Poor Andrew Smyth forgot to actually turn his oven on, causing quite the the panic in the tent.

But he managed to avoid coming rock bottom of the rankings, a title that unfortunately went to Rav for his tart that was - in Paul's words - "just goo".

At the top end, Jane beat Candice to top Paul and Mary's countdown of the best bakes.

The third and final challenge was a bite-size showstopper with Paul and Mary ordering two sets of 24 filo pastry amuse-bouche, one sweet and one savoury.

Candice again impressed and ended up with the title of star baker for Pastry week.

But it was the end of the road for poor Val Stones.
