Flora Shedden has been in the kitchen all her life. When she was ten she began making her own birthday cakes (and everyone else's for that matter) and at twelve she took full creative control over Christmas. She now runs ARAN Bakery. In 2015 she starred on The Great British Bake Off and finished as the youngest ever semi-finalist, becoming known for her style which was referred to as 'florification' and success in technical challenges. She presents a variety of food programmes on BBC Radio Scotland and until recently wrote a weekly baking column for Sunday Telegraph.
