Cake fit for the Queen

18 April, 2016

Reigning Great British Bake Off champion Nadiya Hussain has revealed that she is to bake the Queen’s 90th birthday cake.

Speaking on ITV’s Loose Women, Hussain said she was creating a “very citrusy” orange drizzle cake with orange curd and orange buttercream. Although she initially considered making a fruitcake, she said she had decided to do something a bit different.

The cake will be delivered personally to the Queen at Windsor Castle’s Guildhall on her birthday (21 April).

Hussain said: “When I told the kids, the boys were great at keeping it a secret. I told my daughter and she said, ‘Oh Mary Berry? You’ve made lots of cakes for Mary Berry’.”

Hussain will be holding a live demonstration of her unique bakery techniques at the Food & Drink Expo on 18 April.
