Scarlett Moffatt left judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith goggling at her lurid pink roulade which they branded “sinister and inedible”.
The Gogglebox star took part in The Great Stand Up To Cancer Bake Off along with EastEnders star Patsy Palmer, Inbetweeners funny man James Buckley and 72-year-old Hollywood legend Richard Dreyfuss who were all challenged to make a roulade.
Moffatt, 29, took inspiration from Disney’s Alice In Wonderland and made an ‘Unbirthday Cake’ pink roulade flavoured with strawberry cream liqueur and covered in bright decorations.
She told the judges: “I know it looks like my little sister made it, but it’s meant to look like that... She’s 13.”
Hollywood retorted: “More like a six-year-old [made it].”
Leith asked her: “It’s meant to look sinister and inedible?”
Hollywood told her: “A roulade is all about being light and delicate - you’d need a machete to get through that. The butter cream is terrible, it’s too sweet and too thick.”
Hollywood also told Palmer of her sponge: “It’s like cardboard. I think you’ve overcooked it.”
Buckley surprised both himself and the judges with his baking skills - producing a “great” chocolate roulade, topped with shiny ganache.
And Jaws star Dreyfuss’s roulade was hailed as a triumph, despite cracking when he rolled it, and also impressed with his cannoli Italian pastries in the Technical Challenge.

Host Noel Fielding admitted he was feeling starstruck by Dreyfuss’s presence in the tent. Telling him at the end of the Technical, “You’ve worked with Spielberg, you get an extra 30 seconds!”
Moffatt was taking part in the show after her father Mark Moffatt beat skin cancer last year.
The celebrity spin-off of the hit baking show is in aid of Stand Up To Cancer.
