System Administrator from Newcastle and contestant on Series 3 of The Great Australian Bake Off.
With his spiked-up Mohawk, sleeve of tattoos and biceps normally reserved for a wood chopper, Chris certainly does not fit the stereotypical baker. But this father-of-three is a man of detail and intricacy with a love of pink. “People definitely are surprised I bake,” laughs Chris, who took up baking to surprise his kids and now regularly bakes for his work colleagues. “And there’s a lot shock when they find out and they normally ask why I bake. “I like to go outrageous and go to the extremes. I cook a lot of waffles and lots of cakes. My workmates love it.”
With a love of the intricate and pretty, Chris’s bakes are almost as colourful as his arms. “I have about 10 tattoos,” he says. “I have a sleeve and a Harley Quinn, and I love them. They’re inspired by Batman - I’m a massive Batman freak and I have so many toys and collectables.”
