Shetland-born Mr Morton, 21, who failed to win the third series of the hit BBC2 show, lost out to rival John Whaite in Tuesday evening's final, which drew a record 7.2 million viewers. His showpiece was a "Nation" cake with five constituent parts. Four of them depicted the flags of the four UK nations, but the biggest cake, decorated with Union Flags, "was greater than the sum of its parts".
Judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood, who said the Union Flag cake was "too dry", preferred the Scotland cake, leading Mr Morton to tweet to his 39,000 followers: "Scotland, independently, was the best cake. Annoying."
Mr Morton is busy writing for Shetland Life and putting the final touches to a proposal for a book on breadmaking, his baking speciality.
