A quick bite with Amelia

Fashion designer Amelia is a dab hand at creating and following patterns. What is her recipe for GBBO success?

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

I have wanted to get into the Tent since Series One. It’s still not sunk in, but it’s a dream come true.

What special memories do you have of the first week?

It was all so much fun, meeting all the bakers, meeting the judges and presenters, there wasn’t one moment from that first week that I didn’t enjoy. It was magical.

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 am pretty happy most days to be honest, I am a positive person.  It would have to be a Red Velvet cake, I would like tropical fruit on it, tequila based liqueur in the sponge.  I think I would want it fresh and fruity with some edible glitter to represent a sunny summery day.

Who will be the most surprised out of your friends/workmates/family that you have made it to Bake Off?

I am really excited to tell my godson who is 6 that I am on Bake Off and that will be the best thing ever. I cannot wait to tell him as he means the world to me, I am bursting to tell him.

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

I loved Antony from last year’s series. He is very funny, and quite cute, really talkative so I think he would make the time go by quickly.

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