What Great British Bake Off Winner Frances Quinn Is Up To Now

Celebrity chef and Great British Bake Off winner Frances Quinn has been baking for a long time: ever since she was five-years-old, as per The Great British Bake Off website. Wow. Quinn took the world by storm in 2013. According to Delish, she tackled more than one gig, working as a baker and designing children's clothes full-time before becoming a part of the TV show. She was known for making cakes that were highly impressive in terms of both flavor and presentation. She won the competition when she made a stunning cake that was inspired by Midsummer Night's Dream

According to Quinn's official website, she is rather imaginative. She studied design at Nottingham Trent University, and that training influences her food. "In fact I often get asked what would you choose baking or design? But for me, it's never a choice and always a collaboration of the two," she wrote. Quinn remains true to her mission and continues to combine her passions for design and baking. Wondering what she is up to these days? Here's what you need to know.

She is baking quite a lot these days

As highlighted by Delish, the baker is quite intent on baking as much as possible. For one, she has her own company and makes cakes for special occasions such as weddings. She's also extremely active on Instagram and often comes up with interesting dessert ideas for her followers. For instance, she designed a rather elaborate wedding cake she called the tiffin tower and posted a photo on Instagram. She wrote, "What I love most about what I do is coming up with the ideas and then sharing them with the people that inspired them." 

Also, in 2016, she wrote a book called Quinntessential Baking that looked at baking basic recipes with a little twist. For example, it gave tips on how home bakers could design a brownie in the shape of an owl. Pretty cool, huh? It seems safe to say that Quinn continues to make a mark in the culinary industry through her unique designs and her refreshing take on baking.
