Born in North London, Candice grew up in the pubs that her parents ran – and that she famously immortalised in gingerbread for her most talked about showstopper.
Taught to bake by her beloved Nan, Candice strives to emulate her style, often referring back to her treasured recipe book and hand written notes.
Candice loves everything vintage and her sense of style certainly captured Great British Bake Off viewers’ attention.
With a degree in Sport, Physical Education and Community Studies, Candice was a secondary school teacher when she applied for the show and managed to juggle planning her fabulous bakes and filming commitments with teaching lively teenagers.
Since her victory, she has been extremely busy with a diverse range of projects. She is a regular columnist for The Sunday Times’ writing in the magazine and The Dish, has baked on This Morning and Christmas Kitchen and has appeared as a panellist on Loose Women.
Candice’s very first book, Comfort (Ebury Press) was released in July 2017 and it is a labour of love. The recipes are easy to make and "no nonsense" for a variety of occasions, including baking with kids, birthday parties for all ages, Christmas, afternoon tea, quick savoury bakes for weeknights and "fancier" recipes for the weekend. Recipes include Toffee apple crumble, Cornflake tart, Triple layer berry cake, Christmas cake, a perfect roast chicken, black pudding sausage rolls, Tattie scones, Pork and apple pasties and homemade pork scratchings.
In her spare time, you can find Candice walking her beloved dogs Dennis and Sybil with boyfriend Liam, in the stands at Tottenham or the rugby with her dad or settling down to a great big Sunday roast with her family.
Candice is delighted to be working with Love British Food saying: “I am delighted to be working with Love British Food, I love local and I love British Food so really looking forward to being involved with the campaign.”
