A quick bite with Jamie

Jamie is about to study Sports Science at university – he shares why his dream cake would be a ball to make…

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

When they called to tell me it was a real shock, I wasn’t expecting it at all. But a nice shock!

What memories do you have of the very first week?  

I was quite nervous at the beginning but by the second day the bakers had all gelled and we were all pretty much best mates – it was great.

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 like a lot of sports but I really love tennis. So I think I would make a sphere cake of the tennis ball, sitting on a racquet made of fondant. I think I would put strawberry laces as the strings.

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

All my mates don’t even know that I bake so they will get a shock to see me in an apron!

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

I think Liam, we are both quite young and laid back. Hopefully he might start singing some tunes, we could rap a bit, that would pass the time.

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