new zealand's hottest home baker

Well, hopefully.

Our Eddie's sister, Monica, is currently competing in Kiwi TV sensation. New Zealand's Hottest Home Baker.

Eight budding bakers from across New Zealand battle it out through cupcake combat, sponge flan fighting and icing duels to secure a place in the final Bake Off.

The host, Colin, looks like the love child of David Dickinson and Laurence Llewellyn Bowen, so it's worth watching just to see him diffuse the bun fights (not his hair).


Monica loves baking and you can see her here in training with the unofficial best Kiwi baker in the land, Noelle (a.k.a Eddie's mum)

Since you can't actually watch the show over here, we'll keep you posted on Monica's progress and any top tips she gets whilst on the show (including how the presenter gets his locks so silky soft).
