About Candice

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 handwritten 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 GBBO 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. She has worked with a vast array of brands on PR and social media campaigns and enjoys ongoing relationships with Breville for whom she creates recipes and content. She has been featured in Hello and Ok! magazine and has been an ambassador for Avon Cosmetics.

Candice’s first book, Comfort (Ebury Press) was released in July 2017. 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. Her latest book, Happy Cooking was released in July 2021 and is a real labour of love. In it, she shares the uplifting meals and comforting treats that have seen her through the toughest of times.

In December 2018, Candice and her brother Ben took on The Greenman Pub in Eversholt. After a full refurbishment and menu overhaul, they opened to great reviews and excitement from the local community in February 2019. They have many exciting plans for the venue going forward and can't wait to share them with everyone.

During her spare time, you can find Candice walking her beloved dogs Albus, Sybil and Severus, in the stands at Tottenham or the rugby with her dad or settling down to a great big Sunday roast with her family.
