A quick bite with Alice

Geography teacher Alice has been a baking fanatic since she was a teenager. She shared the special reason her dream cake would be in the shape of a mobile phone…

What’s it like having made it into the Tent?

I have wanted to be in Bake Off ever since the show started. To be on such a big show doing something that you are passionate about is a huge thing. Being accepted into the tent gave me the confidence to feel that I could bake. It was a dream come true!

In the very first week what special memories do you have of that time? 

Walking into the tent for the first time was incredible. Your eyes are seeing it, but your brain is not quite understanding what is happening to you.

You are asked to make a cake that signifies one of the happiest days of your life.  What would it be and why…and what would it be made of?

I think I would make a cake that resembled a mobile phone, as my happiest moment was when I got the call that I was going to be in Bake Off.  

If you were stuck in a lift with a previous Baker who would it be and why?

I think Ruby from last year’s series. She is really cool and I would like to swap stories with her about Bake Off.

The Great British Bake Off starts Tuesday 27th August, 8pm on Channel 4.
