Jane's caramel crisis on Bake Off was incredibly stressful

Jane Beedle has had a successful run on The Great British Bake Off so far but her mini-meltdown during the technical challenge in the semi-final had fans massively stressed.

The affable garden designer and her fellow contestants had to make some tricky yeast-based savarin cakes, which included shards of caramel laid out as part of the decoration on top.

But Jane admitted that caramel has never been her strong point, and she had to keep trying and trying.

Alas, it didn’t go well as her sugar kept crystallising as she gave it her best shot.

She cried out in frustration as time ticked on: “How is it that everyone can do it apart from me?”

Fans of Bake Off at home were going wild on Twitter, worrying themselves into a frenzy as it looked as though she wouldn’t be able to serve anything. It was stressful.

Many fans were full of sympathy as she did her best… over and over and over.

But, at the end of the challenge, she came out on top anyway, regardless of her caramel fail. Go Jane!
