Candice Brown is best known for her incredible creations that got her to the final of 2016’s Great British Bake Off. The baker was crowned the show winner by Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry four years ago.

The TV star revealed that she recently entertained her Instagram followers with a live bake off.

The 35-year-old explained she often watches her live streams back and there was a particular moment which remains firmly in her mind.

Candice explained: “On live you still get people asking questions and getting involved and things like that. I do enjoy them.

“It’s quite funny when I look back and watch them. I’m like, ‘Oh dear!'”

Speaking about a particular situation, she said: “It was like my dog barked and then he got himself wedged right under the kitchen unit and I was trying to unhook him with my foot.

“And then a wasp flew through the window at my head and I tried to get this wasp away.”

Candice went on: “Then I couldn’t get the mixer working and then something fell on the floor.

“It was just one of those [lives] where I just ended up laughing.”

She added: “It should have been a 20 minute bake and it ended up with me laughing, saying ‘Well this has gone really well’.

“Luckily, I can laugh at myself.”

Meanwhile, Candice has partnered with Lyle’s for their new limited-edition Golden Syrup tin to help raise money for UK food banks.

The Trussell Trust is working with its network of food banks to provide emergency help to people right now, and work towards a future where everyone has enough money for essentials.

Lyle’s aims to donate £40,000 to the Trussell Trust from sales of its new limited edition Raise A Smile syrup tin with each 20 pence going directly to the charity.

It comes following a huge rise in people needing food banks as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Candice has created two recipes including a Cornflake Tart and Salted Caramel Shortbread where consumers can follow the recipe which the Bake Off winner previously shared during an Instagram Live video.

Speaking about the initiative, she explained: “With Lyle’s releasing their special edition tin and every 20 pence going to Trussell Trust which is a really, really worthy cause.

“It’s putting a smile on people’s faces during a really difficult time at the moment.”

Candice added: “People have got a little bit more time in lockdown to make some biscuits, wrap them up, put a ribbon on them and drop them on their neighbours doorstep or their families.

“Just put a smile on people’s faces. And using the golden syrup in the caramel is going to help as well.”

Lyle’s are encouraging the nation to bake for friends, family, neighbours and colleagues.

Recipes include Cherry Bakewell Flapjacks and Laidback Blueberry Muffins.
