We’re pretty sure we weren’t the only ones glued to our TV screens for the mirror glazed cake challenge presented to the 2016 contestants for the first time last year! For their show-stopper bakes, the 12 new contestants were tasked and more than a little daunted in having to create mirror glaze cakes, a decorating trend that has taken the cake world by storm last year. The group included 2016 winner to-be, Candice Brown who since her victorious win on the show is set to release her brand new book of comforting bakes following her unveiling of personalised line of ‘tot’ cross buns in time for Easter!
