Before winning the Great British Bake Off, Frances’ background was in design. Having studied Textile Design at Nottingham Trent University and going on to work within design companies in London to Vancouver. In fact she often gets asked what would she have chosen; baking or design? But for her it’s never been a choice and always a collaboration of the two. She is constantly thinking creatively whether designing with food or fabric. It’s what drives herideas and is the ingredient that helps her produce unique and edible designs.
