Former Great British Bake Off contestant, Cathryn Dresser, will release her first book, Let’s Bake, next May. 

Published by Orion Children’s Books, the baking book (RRP £12.99) is aimed at parents and children. It will centre around a seasonal theme, with occasion-based recipes such as lunchbox additions, "rainy-day baking" and Pancake Day.

Dresser, who competed in the third series of the BBC show, said: "I hope this book will encourage grown-ups and children to get together, have fun, find something to do on a rainy day, bake gifts for friends, try new flavours and ingredients, learn about healthy eating and seasonality, and store up millions of happy memories for the future.”
