Louise

Aged 46

Originally from Merthyr Tydfil, hairdresser Louise now lives in Cardiff with her fiancé Simon. Louise loves baking and decorating her cakes with elaborate designs, as well as experimenting with different flours and flavours when baking bread. Louise’s passion for baking has grown in the last 10 years after she started making cakes for the charity bake sales at work. When she’s not baking for family and friends she loves being outdoors and has completed various mountain walks, most notably a four day trek around the Andes.
