Rowan Claughton’s The Great British Baking Show Journey

At the age of 21, Rowan Claughton entered the famous British baking competition in hopes of establishing a name for himself in the world of baking. Youngest out of all the 12 participants who entered the tent in this particular season of the show, Rowan was determined to show everyone just how he had been able to make a place for himself there. Trusting in his skills as a baker and decorator, he certainly ensured that his start would not be marked with an elimination.

For the first stage of the completion, Cake Week, Rowan and the other bakers had to complete three different challenges. For the first, he had to make a Signature dish by presenting his take on a vertical layer cake. The baker decided to place his bet on the trusty combination of chocolate and raspberry in order to present his vision. Next came the Technical round, and Rowan was placed 9th among the 12 competitors. While not last, Rowan certainly hoped to further his standing.

The time came for the third and final task of the week, and Rowan was asked to create a Showstopper cake. The theme of the creation had to be an animal, and he chose to go with “Cosmopolitan Lobster.” While his presentation of the cake was believed to be highly impressive, the judges felt that his flavors were not distinguishable enough. Though they admitted that they did enjoy the taste, it did almost feel like “tutti frutti.” Nevertheless, his work was enough to ensure his place in the second week of the competition.
