We caught up with Made in Chelsea star Toff.
So, Toff: can you bake?
No. I’ve never baked anything apart from muffin mix about 15 years ago.
Did anyone teach you to bake?
No, no I never really got taught, I don’t know why. My grandmother always talks about Victoria sponges, but she always makes them and I end up devouring it and not really doing the baking.
Who do you want to impress the most in the tent – Paul or Prue?
Prue, because she’s a posho!
Who do you think is the biggest competition in the tent?
It’s got to be Paxman, he’s always got a few tricks up his sleeve when he’s interviewing, so he’s probably going to be the same here with his baking.
What’s your strength, the decoration, the crumb, or the flavours?
I would say the flavours would be my forte, I’m not very artistic so I’m not going to hold my breath for anything arty.
Why are you supporting Stand Up To Cancer?
Because I think it’s so important to raise awareness. I want to raise as much money as possible. Cancer has touched everyone in a different way and I think it’s very important that we’re here to do what we can.
If you were hosting your own baking fundraising event what would your top tips be?
To hike the prices up on everything and make sure you take their money – it’s all for such a good cause! Also be brave, be bold and be eye catching – and also experiment with different things.
How do you feel about the technical challenge? Are you good under pressure?
I’m great under pressure. I love pressure! It’s the only time I actually do anything.
Are you a traditionalist or do you like experimenting with wacky flavours?
I am a real traditionalist. However, I don’t mind combining random flavours as long as they are traditional flavours.
If you were a baked good what would you be?
If I were a baked good, I would be a sticky toffee pudding… my name is Toff after all!
