Candice Brown, a former Brookmans Park teacher, has been crowned the champion of the final ever series of the Great British Bake Off to be shown on the BBC.
Candice Brown, 31, who worked as a PE teacher at Chancellor’s School in Brookmans Park, from September 2009 until August 2014, impressed the judges once again last night, winning her the title as the winner.
The showstopper bake challenge was to produce a picnic banquet fit for a queen.
Contestants had to bake a cake, produce sausage rolls, tartlets and miniature quiches.
Candice impressed the judges with her sausage rolls modelled on little piglets with peppercorn eyes and crackling tails.
Unlike the other competitors, her pastry was properly cooked.
Her mouth watering orange and chocolate cake also received high praise.
After being crowned the winner, Candice said: “I never ever thought I would get on this and I’m standing here now. They said my name and that means more to me than I think anyone will ever realise.”
