‘I find myself walking a very different path and it is such a joy to have had this privilege.’ I was nearing 60 years old and wanted to challenge myself and shake things up, so I applied to take part in The Great British Bake Off. I had a good look at what was required and realised I needed to up my game. There were so many things to learn like how to make choux and puff pastry, croissants and Danish, bake bread and so much more. So as I answered the questions on the form, I set myself a weekly challenge to learn all these techniques I had never attempted before. It was a true crash course in baking!
