Syabira Yusoff

The winner of the 2022 series of The Great British Bake Off, Syabira Yusoff surprised and delighted the judges with her unusual flavour combinations and imaginative bakes. Although Syabira has been cooking since she was 12, she only started baking in 2017, making a Red velvet cake to remind her of friends she missed in Malaysia, where she was born and raised. She soon discovered she had a talent for baking and began giving a Malaysian twist to British classics. Syabira’s interest in tanks comes from online gaming, and she has even visited The Tank Museum to see them in real life.

How to Enter the Baking Competition

– The competition is completely free to enter, all you need to do is submit two pictures of your best novelty or tank-shaped cake.
– The cake doesn’t have to made specially for this competition! If you’ve made a cake you’re really proud of in the past, you can still enter – as long as you have some photos of it.
– If there are small non-edible decorations or non-edible supports, that is absolutely fine – as long as the majority is cake.
– ‘Novelty Cake’ can be of absolutely anything (no military theme required) including but not limited to objects, landscapes, buildings and more.
