Who is Louise Williams?

Originally from Merthyr Tydfil, Louise now lives in Cardiff with her fiancé Simon. And, you won’t believe this, but she loves baking, particularly for charity bake sales at work.

Louise should also have more than enough stamina for the tent – she’s completed various mountain walks, including a four-day trek around the Andes. 

What is Louise’s baking style?

To Louise every bake revolves around appearances – each of her home bakes has an elaborate design.


Plus, Louise likes to experiment with different flours and flavours. In other words, this woman is made for bread week. Bring it on, Hollywood!
