Young baker from Altrincham aspires to be the next Mary Berry

First published in

A YOUNG baker from Altrincham hopes to be the next Mary Berry – and put smiles on people’s faces while she’s at it.

Nine-year-old Lucy Potts, who lives on Lindsell Road, has been making cakes since the age of five and hopes to do so for a living like Buddy Valastro, star of her favourite TV programme ‘Cake Boss’.

Lucy’s grandmother, Anne Bailes, recently celebrated her birthday, so Lucy spent weeks designing a special celebration cake (pictured) which she made without any assistance.

Family friend, Angela O’Brien, said: “Aside from making her mum and dad proud, she makes me very proud to know her – her mother is like a sister to me.

“Lucy’s ultimate dream is to own her own cake shop, and with a name like Lucy Potts, I think it was meant to be.”
