The Great Australian Bake Off

The Bakers

Antonio

Baker

At just 16-years-old, Antonio is the youngest baker in the series. The year 11 student comes from a close-knit Italian family and, while he may be young, he has a secret weapon that may prove to be a threat to the other bakers – his grandmother, who is armed with a lifetime of baking knowledge.

Jeremy

Baker

Jeremy normally wears his heart on his sleeve, boasting an armful of tattoos. But it’s in the kitchen baking that truly allows the welder to express himself.

Cheryl

Baker

Horse trainer and mum-of-four Cheryl finds her baking inspiration from an unlikely source – former professional golfer Gary Player.

Janette

Baker

If there are two things grandmother Janette knows how to master in the kitchen, it’s a tasty scone and a mouthwatering pavlova.

Bojan

Baker

Bojan comes from a large Serbian family, where food, particularly baking, has a special place in a family’s heart. He grew up in Serbia watching his mum bake traditional dishes, and Bojan is keeping his country’s food culture alive on the other side of the world.

Monica

Baker

Monica can be such a force when it comes to baking that her doting husband of more than 20 years has a nickname for her.

Liesel

Baker

With the world at her feet, nothing much daunts confident Liesel - except baking bread.

James R

Baker

James is a self-confessed nerd with a love of gadgets, who uses as much technology as possible to help him bake.

Olivia

Baker

When Olivia recently made a child’s birthday cake, the elaborate creation certainly caught the attention of her friends.

Diana

Baker

Diana moved to Australia from Sweden nearly four years ago and brought her love of baking Down Under. But there are a couple of Aussie baking icons that have left her flummoxed.

Fiona

Baker

Fiona’s love of baking began inauspiciously late one night during her early twenties.

Noel

Baker

Retired maths and science teacher Noel likes nothing more than being elbow deep in flour. And when he’s not baking, he can be found in his garden nursery knee deep in flower of a different kind.
