Former Great British Bake Off contestant dishes out advice to Southam bakers

Leamington Editorial 18th Oct, 2015 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

A FORMER Great British Bake Off contestant showcased her skills at a special event in Southam.

Christine Wallace reached the quarter finals or the BBC One programme back in 2013 and she joined members of Southam Baking Circle for an evening to pass on some tips.

As well as baking three muffin recipes from her new cook book, she also took part in a question and answer session before judging a vanilla cupcake signature challenge competition.

Southam Baking Circle founder Mandy Rowlatt was awarded third place and Emma Tysoe Griffiths was given second place but the number one position was scooped by Claire Thorpe, who was a signed copy of Christine’s cook book.

A raffle with prizes donated from local businesses helped to raise more than £300 on the night and plans are already underway for next year’s event.

The group will be holding a Thanksgiving-themed meeting on Thursday November 12.
