A former soap actress is helping a company create short films on how to bake.

Coronation Street star Wendi Peters is helping Wright’s Baking, based in Ponders End, in Enfield, create several films on baking simple bread and cake recipes.

Known to many as Cilla Battersby-Brown in the soap, Ms Peters will demonstrate how to make toffee muffins, a classic Madeira cake and a white bloomer loaf using Wright’s ingredients.

The baking enthusiast said: “As a busy working mum and a passionate baker I understand the pressures of daily life.

“I am delighted to be able to add my own hints and tips to the films and help people perfect their cakes and breads with Wright’s versatile and easy to use mixes.”

David Wright, managing director of Wright’s, added: “Our aim is to help people enjoy their baking and our films provide answers to all those little questions that go unanswered when using a recipe book.”
