Who would’ve thought The Great British Bake Off’s Free-From week would come with so many tears?
Last night’s episode was emotional – especially baker Lizzie’s incredible ‘Extraordinary’ Celebration Cake, an incredible tribute to anybody with special educational needs.
But despite producing one of the most striking cakes we think we’ve ever seen, Lizzie sadly didn’t make it through to the semi-finals and left the Bake Off tent – but not before giving viewers a moment that they’re all deeming as “iconic”.
Speaking to the camera about how it felt to reach the quarter finals, a teary Lizzie suddenly pulls an orange beauty sponge out of nowhere to dab at her tears.

And while viewers were sobbing along with her, they couldn’t help but praise her for serving yet another memorable moment to this year’s series.

Some even pointed out that using a beauty sponge to dab away tears is truly genius and it’s true – why haven’t we thought of this sooner?

At first glance, we could tell that Lizzie’s trusty tool is a Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, £5.99, in case you wanted to give her tears hack a try. If last night’s episode was anything to go by, we’ll all need it for next week’s semi-finals…
