The Great British Bake OffThe Halloween victim of the week penned a poignant farewell note promising to stay close to the show’s “merry band”.
This week, bakers were challenged to celebrate fall with their own twist on apple cake in the Signature while the Showstopper was set to be a takeoff on the piñata.
Unfortunately, Dawn’s bids weren’t gruesome enough for judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith, so she was defeated from the sinister tent of doom.

Despite the scares offered this week, Dawn became surprisingly poignant and retrospective in a farewell note about finally making it to the tent after 10 applications!
Comparing her experience to “a weird baking-themed vacation with all my kids and their buddies,” Dawn challenged viewers: “Anyone who is thinking of applying, do it, and if at first you don’t don’t hear, try again!
“It’ll be up there like one of the best things you’ve ever done.”
The baker also gave a shout out to the alpacas at her local petting zoo, which had featured in her introductory VT last month.
