We asked the BuzzFeed Community, BuzzFeed Staff and Twitter for their favourite ever BBC Bake Off moments, to mark the final series on the channel.

1. THE #BINGATE SITUATION, when Diana mistakingly took Ian's baked Alaska from the freezer.

Love Productions / BBC

It caused Diana to have this face.

And made people react like this.

YOU CAN SHOVE YOUR MERINGUE SWAN UP YOUR ARSE, DIANA. #GBBO

Even though Sue Perkins made this point.

Iain's Alaska was out of the freezer for 40 secs. That's it. No sabotage. 40 secs of normal temp would NOT be enough to reduce it to liquid

Suggested by Katy Barr on Facebook, who added: "It's all I ever spoke about for a couple of weeks. WHO TAKES ICE CREAM OUT OF THE FREEZER!?"

2. When Paul made a FANTASTICAL BREAD LION.

BBC / Love Productions

It led to wonderful parodies like this.

Suggested by Sophie Hudson on Facebook.

3. When some dough was accidentally thrown into the air and landed on the green carpet.

It was then suggested to serve it with some carpet bits in. This did not go down that well.
