Sophie faldo  - The Great British Bake Off Winner 2017


The Great British Bake Off Winner 2017
After graduating with a Masters in Psychology from The University of Toulouse Sophie joined the British Army as an Officer in the Royal Artillery. 
It was on leaving the Army and finally having a kitchen of her own that Sophie discovered her love of baking and passion for patisserie. She volunteered to make a friend's birthday cake and never looked back! 
It was Sophie's boyfriend, David who entered her into Channel 4’s The Great British Bake Off competition which saw her crowned winner. She wowed the judges and viewers alike with her show stopping bakes and her ability to hold her nerve in that famous Bake Off tent! Stand-out creations include her champagne cake, described by The Radio Times as ‘a work of genius’, and her trifle terrine which won her the Star Baker award in Week 5.
When not baking, Sophie is training to be a stuntwoman and enjoys track cycling, rowing and travel. She lives in Surrey with David and cat Loki.
