Great British Bake Off bakers to appear in Edinburgh

This year’s final of The Great British Bake Off saw Nadiya Jamir Hussain crowned as Britain’s best amateur baker. Competing in a truly emotional final against Ian Cumming and Tamal Ray, Nadiya’s win had viewers and judges alike in tears. The 30-year-old from Leeds wowed Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry with her perfect iced buns, winning mille-feuille and her unforgettable ‘Big Fat British Wedding cake’.

Now you can have another helping of Bake Off at The Cake & Bake Show in Edinburgh. Watch 2015 finalists Nadiya, Ian and Tamal recreate their most memorable bakes at The Great British Bake Off Live stage, alongside your favourite bakers from the past. Fans will get to see Flora Shedden, Ugne Aleksejenko and Marie Campbell from this year’s show, whilst past bakers will include Jo Wheatley, John Whaite and Norman Calder.

The Edinburgh Cake and Bake Show will take place at The Royal Highland Centre in Ingliston from Friday 30th October – Sunday 1st November 2015.
