Candice Brown

Winner of The Great British Bake Off 2016, Candice Brown is best known for her fabulous cakes and bakes. Author of Comfort – a collection of mouth-watering recipes inspired by her favourite home comforts and recipes – Candice learned to bake from her nan and mum.

Born in North London, Candice grew up in the pubs that her parents ran – and that she famously immortalized in gingerbread for her most talked about showstopper – always chipping in when needed, be it pulling pints or mopping floors. Since winning Bake Off, Candice became a Sunday Times columnist, has baked on This Morning and Christmas Kitchen and appeared as a panellist on Loose Women. She has worked with PayPal on a charity campaign, been featured in Hello magazine and tested lipsticks for Heat magazine. She has also taken part in live baking demos at The Cake and Bake show and Foodies Festival. Follow her foodie escapades @candicebrown on Twitter and Instagram.
