Competitive tennis returned to TV, albeit for the briefest of moments in the tastiest of circumstances. Johanna Konta appeared in the third episode of this season's Stand Up To Cancer Celebrity British Bake Off on UK's Channel 4.
During the episode, she rallied with host Sandi Toksvig, and somehow "lost" the point.
Konta was competing against actress Caroline Quentin, comedian Joel Dommett and Queer Eye's Tan France. The charitable episode was for a good cause, but didn't lack in entertainment, baking fails and competitive effort.
Amidst all the fun (and cakes) there’s a serious message in all of this that can be too easily forgotten given everything else that is happening right now. Please head over to @SU2CUK and support how you can ????@BritishBakeOff #StandUpToCancer— Johanna Konta (@JohannaKonta) March 24, 2020
The world No. 14 wasn't messing around with any kind of healthy or diet alternatives, sticking to pure sugar, butter and flour. In the first task of making eight topped chocolate éclairs, the Brit crafted white chocolate éclairs filled with passionfruit crème diplomate. She would finish second behind Dommett.
In the technical round, Konta was in the Top 2 again after everyone made an orange and black Battenberg sponge cake (in the colors of Stand Up to Cancer). The final task was to bake a 3D cake based on their greatest fears, and so there was a rat, diving platform, wrinkles...and Konta's dog.
It turns out her greatest fear is losing her dog Bono.
Konta's cake didn't look great, but it would taste amazing.
France's wrinkly creation, complete with homemade fondant, put him ahead and he would win the title of Star Baker, with Konta finishing second.
