British Baker’s associate editor Lesley Foottit has made her TV début to speak about National Cupcake Week in a live broadcast. 

Foottit, as a key organiser of the event, was interviewed on the TV show London Live on Monday morning about why the nation loves cake. 

In a national survey, British Baker found that 92% of people would describe themselves as cake lovers, and 39% said they ate cake two to three times a week. 

Foottit also appeared with Shalini Sriskandarasa, last years National Cupcake Champion, who explained how cake has changed her career.
