A politician made a meringue tower inspired by Wexford on Celebrity Bake-Off

It looked pretty tasty.

EPISODE THREE OF The Great Celebrity Bake-Off aired last night in aid of Channel 4′s Stand Up To Cancer initiative.

Comedian Tim Minchin, politician Ruth Davidson, Made In Chelsea star Jamie Laing & singer Ella Eyre were tasked with making a loaf cake, Prue’s iiramisu sandwich biscuits for the technical and some show-stopping meringue towers.

Jamie managed to make “the worst cake” in Bake-Off history, despite his great-grandfather INVENTING the digestive.

Luckily, Ruth ensured the celeb side wasn’t entirely shown up, as she won every single challenge – including the show-stopper.

The leader of the Scottish Conservatives looked to Ireland for some inspo, dyeing her meringues the colour of the tricolour and serving with Wexford strawberry daquiris.

She made the tower for her partner Jen Wilson’s birthday, who originally hails from Wexford, and said the dessert would be “strawberry-tastic”.

Paul Hollywood declared the tower to be “bold”, with ‘super meringues’. Not bad!

Moral of the story – when all else fails, look to Ireland.
