A Gravesend girl born and bred, Laura began baking at around the age of eight but realised her flair for it only a few years ago. She loves citrus and strong flavours and enjoys putting a modern twist on old classics. Laura thrives working under pressure and thinks her organised nature is what particularly suits her to taking part in Bake Off. The perfectionist in her wants things to look faultlessly pretty and gorgeously dainty. She specialises in decoration and is proud to have mastered the art of piped buttercream flowers. Laura is happily married to a Police Community Support Officer and she loves musical theatre (as a performer and audience member) and is a volunteer for the Samaritans.
