Carol Vorderman displayed her head-over-heels love for Wales with her appearance on the latest episode of The Great Stand Up For Cancer Bake Off - with a bake dedicated to her love of her home country and rugby.

But for her signature bake - which was meant to be a 'sandwich biscuit' - Carol admitted that she chose to 'adapt' the traditional recipe for the cake and called them 'cacuits'.

Her 'cacuits' were shaped like a rugby ball and topped with a Welsh flag design, echoing her huge passion for the Welsh rugby team.

"This is about the things that I love," said the presenter, who became famous for co-hosting Countdown. "I’ve sort of adapted the the recipe a bit. I’ve only ever baked Welsh cakes once before, how could it possibly go wrong?"

Though her heart was in the right place, Carol's fateful words were ringing in her ears as she burnt the Welsh cakes on the bakestone, was told by Prue Leith "it’s delicious but it ain’t a biscuit" and sneakily (on camera) got Sandi Toksvig to make her fondant Welsh dragons.

Joining fellow celebs Kelly Brook, Judge Rob Rinder and comedian Mo Gilligan, Carol aimed to impress Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood in the charity special of the Channel 4 baking competition, which raises money for Stand Up to Cancer.

The technical was a batch of iced buns and Carol, who has been teaching thousands of children maths via her The Maths Factor website, managed to come first with her fluffy creations and impressed Prue Leith.

But it was the show stopper that sealed the deal for the Welsh celeb - who is also an honorary group captain for the RAF - as her indulgent bubble bath cake saw her crowned star baker, as well as be included in some of the most raunchy bakes in the show's history.

Rinder made a tower of raunchy novels with and interesting design and Brook made a sexy bubble bath, complete with a busty, bathing version of herself.

Carol said before the show: "I did one practice. I’d never make a Welsh cake before. I decided to do that as my signature dish because Wales is important to me. I grew up there, my mum’s Welsh, my father was Dutch. And in the last year or so I’ve been working a lot back in Wales, and I can only describe it as falling in love with my country."

While the Welsh cakes were cooly received by the judges, Carol's love of her Welsh homeland knows no bounds. She has said about the country: "It makes me cry with joy and laughter. I’m re-learning Welsh, and I’m going to live in Wales. I love it, and I think I understand it more as a grown up. The Welsh have the biggest softest hearts and love laughing, which I guess is exactly what I do too. So I practised my Welsh cakes."
