Star baker helps stu­dents rise

Macclesfield Express - - WILDLIFE -

AF­TER spend­ing 10 ag­o­nis­ing weeks cook­ing for the judges on the Great Bri­tish Bake Off, star baker Luis Troy­ano is en­joy­ing a taste of things on the other side of the judges’ ta­ble.

Luis, from Poyn­ton, who nar­rowly missed out on the Bake Off crown in the BBC cook­ery com­pe­ti­tion last year, has been drafted in as a judge at a high school’s an­nual bake-off. He took time out from his busy sched­ule to judge the com­pe­ti­tion at Stock­port Gram­mar School.

Luis, who has also brought out his own recipe book ‘Bake it Great’ and has plans to open his own bake­house in Poyn­ton later this year, chose third year pupils Lucy Snell and Sana Ahmed as over­all win­ners when he sam­pled their ice cream themed cake, which in­cluded three dif­fer­ent top­pings – chocolate or­ange cream, Oreo cookie cream and Mal­teaser cream.

He said: “The flavours on the win­ning cake were in­cred­i­ble. The chocolate or­ange cream is the best I’ve ever tasted. When it comes to bak­ing, de­sign is one thing but it is great flavour that sells.”
