They produced a dish too sweet for one of the judges and so a sour taste was left in the mouth of MasterChef sisters Fiona and Bronwyn.

The duo were eliminated on last night's episode, producing what the judges described as an overly sweet ice cream, an assessment Bronwyn disagreed with.

"We wouldn't have missed the experience, we're proud of ourselves as cooks and we don't agree with the judges but they are the judges," she said.

"I don't think that dessert should have sent us home, I don't think it was the worst dish of the day but we're not the judges.

"If you watched the final show you'll see that we cooked extremely good food."

Upon their elimination many of the other contestants referred to them as mentors and mother figures, a role which Fiona said they enjoyed.

"We both love sharing our knowledge and skills and realised during MasterChef we had a lot more knowledge than we gave ourselves credit for."

Bronwyn said they helped others so much that they were told to stop by the show's producers.

"We were told several times to stop helping people but it's in our nature.

"We shared a lot. Fiona is an amazing cook with perfect techniques and she shared so much with people but we got things back from people as well."

Although they had experience on their side, it also meant they were less effective at thinking on their feet, Bronwyn said.

"I was probably the oldest contestant on MasterChef and, to be honest, a little bit less adaptable than the other people.

"Like when we go in the cupboard to get your food they were probably quicker at spotting things, just because they were younger.

"I don't think that was a disadvantage but they were certainly more adaptable."

The pair came into MasterChef with a cookbook already drafted in the event they won, so to go out so early on was a massive disappointment.

The pair continue to help and inspire others with a Facebook page called Pink Sisters - MasterChef 2014.

They started it immediately after leaving the MasterChef house to share some of their extensive knowledge and recipes with the world.
