Kate

Aged 37

Mother of two Kate is a farmer’s daughter from Norfolk. She is a qualified nurse and works on an acute respiratory ward, an emotionally and physically challenging job that she finds incredibly rewarding. She thrives on nurturing others, be it her daughters and her husband Dave, her patients or her group of Brownies. She’s had a passion for baking since she was a child and loves using seasonal fruits and produce which she gathers with her children from her parents’ farm. As well as her everyday family baking Kate will work through the night to produce flawless sugar craft creations and although she always strives for perfection if something does go wrong she will always try to maintain her bright and cheery disposition.
