Behind the sweet smiles and scrummy catchphrases, Mary Berry, 78, is well and truly at the top of the baking chain.

The home cook has whipped-up a staggering £15 million fortune since she started as a judge on The Great British Bake Off. Not bad, eh?

Mary has also published 60 recipe books and runs her own successful business selling salad dressings, condiments and cooking sauces.

She owns £10 million worth of property with her husband Paul and gets a salary of more than £200,000 for her judging role on GBBO. Wow.

We can just picture Mary in her Barbour jacket, strolling the grounds of her leafy Buckinghamshire home, throwing bread at the ducks in her lake. MARY ADOPT US. PLEASE.

Official figures for her condiments company, Mary Berry And Daughter Ltd, show the business made a profit of £1.076million in 2012, with cash assets of more than £1million.

Who says cupcakes and pies can't make you a millionaire.

What do you think?
