Kim-Joy’s Bake Off journey
Kim-Joy nearly quit the show in Patisserie Week when she just couldn’t get the consistency of her chocolate mousse right. But she got there in the end and made it through to the final.
Danish Week proved a little emotional for Kim-Joy, whose pastry creation didn’t go down as well as expected… but she still made it through to the semi-finals.
