'Great British Bake Off' winner Rahul Mandal believes that anybody can win the show.
The 30-year-old made his first television baking experience since being crowned the winner of the 'Great British Bake Off' when he appeared on 'This Morning' today (09.11.18) and encouraged others to try baking because he admitted that he did not have much experience prior to winning the show.
The budding baker said: "I definitely think everybody should try because I started baking two years ago so if I can be in bake off then anybody can."
The BBC star - who hails from Kolkata in India originally - acknowledged that he was constantly anxious on the show because he is naturally a worrier and was falling under the stress of the competition.
He admitted: "I like to find out what's wrong with things."
Rahul - whose confidence as a baker has grown since finishing first on the hit show - baked a spicy ginger cake live by mixing brown sugar, cinnamon, ground ginger, eggs and baking powder.
The research scientist who is currently based in Rotherham and won the hit show at the end of October (30.10.18) revealed that his scientific background helps him to make carefully planned cakes.
He agreed that there was a certain science to baking and said he bakes his ginger cake carefully.
He advised: "You have to stick to measuring"
"It's very important to remember that all the fats are in the same temparation like the butter and vegetable fat like margarine is out of the fridge for atleast a couple of hours."
He previously stated when the show was running: "Colleagues I knew during my PhD don't have a clue that I can bake. Back in India, I didn't bake either. All of them and actually myself are surprised that I made it into the tent."
