Meet The Muslim Woman Who Will Bake The Queen’s 90th Birthday Cake

Naadiya Hussain was born in Bangladesh but raised in Luton, UK. Hussain has been selected to bake the birthday cake for Queen Elizibiths 90th birthday.

Naadiya isn’t just a typical cook, she is the winner of 6th season of The Great British Bake Off by BBC.

The champion of the popular BBC show revealed that she will be serving an orange drizzle cake with orange buttercream and orange curd on the occasion.

Talking on ITV’s Loose Women, Hussain told that she wanted to bake a fruit cake but thought it was better to be a bit different.

The cake will be delivered to the Queen on Thursday on her 90th Birthday at the Windsor Castle’s Guildhall.

Here are some cakes Naadiya has baked previously.


Naadiya learned baking through reading and viewing YouTube guide videos.
