The nation’s favourite cake maker Nadiya Hussain turned up on Sunday for her TV fans to show the ‘foodies’ in London’s East End how to make the best cakes in Britain.
The winner of the BBC’s Great British Bake-Off was the star turn at the weekend’s Foodies Festival Christmas at Brick Lane’s Old Truman’s Brewery, having won the national kitchen talent contest in October.
“I’ll be making some of my favourite festive bakes,” she promised—and she did. “The audience can recreate these cakes at home and ‘wow’ their friends and family.”
Millions of viewers watched her in October turning out an icing cake that looked the dead spit of a peacock.
On Sunday, Nadiya to mooched around the artisan market looking at the stalls selling almost every cheese under the sun, chutneys by the jar as well as jams of every type and flavour, oils, biscuits and spirits.
