Baking duo Laurian and Thibault have been declared the winners of Bake Off: The Professionals 2020.
The duo, who work at Cardiff’s Cocorico Patisserie, sailed to victory in an intense final stand-off.
Having previously appeared on Bake Off: Creme de la Creme, within 2017, the pair had a bit more luck second time round and were crowned champion.
‘ I don’t think I could have done it with anyone else. It means a lot, you know. It means a lot to my wife, my kids, ’ they both said.
‘ This is for all the time we missed with our family and friends. This is for them. ’
But they seriously had to work for it, with the first round seeing the final three teams making edible hats that can be worn by models in a catwalk show (with 48 filled chocs to go with them. )
Finally, they were given just seven hours to create a historic banquet set for 80 guests – which was then served up to family and friends at Firle Place’ s Great Hall as they awaited the results.
Alongside the winning pair were there competitors Clanny and Ryan, and Domenico and Alessandra, who fought them right to the end along with creations just as stunning as their own.
It was left to judges Benoit Blin plus Cherish Finden to make the final call, with hosts Tom Allen and Liam Charles on hand to announce the happy news.
