There Was a Great British Bake Off Reunion at a Contestant's Wedding

They all made their own cakes for the reception!

The Great British Bake Off is popular with fans for being gentle and wholesome, despite ultimately being a competition reality show. Based on this reputation, it’s no surprise that the cast would remain close. Recently Martha Collison, who competed on what was the fifth series in the UK but aired as the first season in the US, recently married Michael Haywood, whom she started dating in 2014. That happens to be the same year she competed on the baking program, when she was only 17!

Many of her fellow contestants attended the wedding, including Nancy Birtwhistle, Claire Goodwin, Iain Watters, Chetna Makan, Kate Henry, Enwezor Nzegwu, and Richard Burr. As an extra-special touch, each baker made their own cake for the couple, making for a truly beautiful and elaborate dessert table! See photos of the reunion and the stunning cakes below.
