At only 24 years old Ashlyn is this year's youngest baker. Living on a farm in Englewood, Tennessee, she has learned to incorporate natural ingredients into her bakes. Ashlyn has always had a love for nature, so whether it is foraging for Canadian hemlock to make syrup, or picking fresh flowers to flavor a cake, she is always finding new ways to bring pieces of her backyard to her bakes. As a graduate from Auburn University, Ashlyn is well versed in horticulture. In her free time, Ashlyn loves designing gardens for her neighbors, hosting garden parties, and delivering baked goods to people in her area.
