About the baker:
I’m 28, work for the Guardian newspaper, and I’ve lived in London for five years or so. I only recently moved to the Hackney area but it already feels like it’s always been my home. As for why I chose FCFK – I love baking, basically! A friend told me about FCFK and it sounded like a great opportunity to be able to bake for purpose (other than just eating it all myself…) I love being able to contribute to my local community and help make a kid’s birthday a little brighter.
