    A Devastating Cake Disaster Just Happened On "The Great British Bake Off"

    And the cake looks like all of our crushed dreams.

    So the showstopper challenge in the first new episode of Bake Off was a Black Forest gâteau, and all the cakes were coming along really rather well.

    Apart from Dorret's cake. The mousse in her cake wasn't setting quickly enough.

    And she only had thirty minutes to rectify the situation.

    So she decided to put it in the freezer.

    And left it to the last minute to take it out again.

    She then unfurled the wrapping that was holding the gâteau in place, hoping it would have set.

    And it didn't.

    Oh god. This is painful.

    Oh no I can't bear it. Please don't cry. #GBBO

    Oh poor Dorett! Don't cry! (She's definitely out this week). #GBBO

    Update from Dad on how the family are reacting to #GBBO.

    The presenter Sue then stepped in and helped comfort Dorett, who was now in tears.

    The world would be a happier place if Sue Perkins was there to console you everytime you got upset #GBBO

    And then she had to present what was left of her cake to Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood.

    And it looked like this.

    "I call it a 'Sit On It, Then Throw It On The Floor, Then Scrape It Up With An Old Shoe Surprise'." #GBBO

    If a cake ever represented my life: #GBBO

    how I feel stood next to my friends #GBBO

    And Paul Hollywood's review of Dorret's cake? It really didn't help things, to be quite honest.

    But it wasn't the end for Dorett, as the hipster with the hat got kicked out instead.

    Basically the lesson of this week's #GBBO is never wear a hat indoors

    Who, let’s say, wasn’t that popular.

    Stu's glad he's out, before the series went mainstream. #GBBO

    Hats off to Stu. No, really, take the f**king hat off. #GBBO

    And remember, it was so much worse last year.
