Owner of Dixie’s Cupcakery Luisa Zissman will be seen doing battle with doctor Leah Totton, who aims to use the money to get into the collagen-injection business, to be crowned winner of the popular TV programme.
Zissman aims to use the prize money to expand on her bakery empire that includes bakery decoration supply firm thebakershop.co.uk and the aforementioned Dixie’s Cupcakery cake shop and delivery business.
Botox v Bakery
Zissman and Totton fought off 15 other candidates to remain in the fight to become Lord Alan Sugar’s business partner in a final dubbed by the press as ‘Botox v Bakery’.
Opened in 2011, Hertfordshire-based Dixie’s Cupcakery claims to use only the finest ingredients – including free-range eggs, genetically modified-free ingredients and locally sourced fruit and vegetables – to create fresh cupcakes daily.
Zissman will pitch a business plan to create a wholesale firm catering to the baking market with cake tins and utensils to Lord Sugar in her bid to win the investment.
Speaking on the show, Zissman said: “I’m not into corporate jargon. I do what I do, I buy, I sell and I make money.”
The winner will be announced tonight on the show that begins at 8pm on BBC One.
