Channel 4 viewers spied the determined baker add the finishing touches to his Showstopper after hosts Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig had announced time was up.
One said: "#BakeOff Rahul cheating, decorating his cake after time’s up as he walks up with it! #cheater."
Another added: "#bakeoff Rahul keeps working after the time's up every time #cheat."
Someone else added: "The time had finished yet Rahul was still putting decorations on top of his cake! Seriously!!
"I used to like him and root for him to win but not anymore! So tilted and stacked for him to win. #GBBO.'"
Despite some controversy on Twitter, Rahul made it through to the final alongside Kim-Joy and Ruby.
It was the end of the road for Briony Williams, who struggled to hold back her tears after being booted out of a mishap-filled Patisserie week.
The Bristol native, 33, said: "I'm sad to not be going through but so happy with how far I've come in so many ways. What an experience.
"I still love baking. I love it more than ever! I don't often say I'm proud of myself, but I am."
The final of the Channel 4 series, which airs next Tuesday, will see Ruby, Rahul and Kim-Joy take on a task outside of the iconic marquee, in a big twist for the 2018 series.
For the first time ever, producers will ditch the beloved tent for the technical challenge.
