Crystelle Pereira On The Great British Bake Off (GBBO)
Crystelle Pereira developed her love and passion for baking at a young age–reportedly when her mom made her the ‘chief taster’ in the kitchen while preparing meals. However, it’s only been 3 years since she started taking baking seriously.
“90 percent chaos, 10 percent attempting to bake.” This is how Crystelle describes herself in her Instagram bio. However, the works she uploads on her Instagram handle tell a different story altogether. All her cake pops are neat and so are her chocolate and peanut butter cake.
Crystelle infuses her bakes with spices from all over the places she has visited. We are yet to see what she brings to the table in The Great British Bake Off Season 12.
While the worldwide lockdown imposed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic was not great overall, Crystelle used her free time to excel in baking, and now she is ready than ever to compete in GBBO Season 12.
Crystelle announced her participation in GBBO Season 12 through an Instagram post on September 14, 2021. She wrote, “Some will say it’s photoshop. Mum says I should work on my posture.
