James McAvoy Delights Fans With Baking Skills On 'Great British Bake Off'

The "His Dark Materials" actor made a "delicious" lemon meringue pie, "perfect" scones, and even a cute cake that looked like a snow leopard.

James McAvoy apparently has both acting chops and serious baking abilities. 

The actor appeared on “The Great British Bake Off” spinoff “The Great Celebrity Bake Off: Stand Up to Cancer,” a special celebrity edition of the show where celebrities bake to raise money for the Stand Up to Cancer organization.

Fans showed all the love for the Scottish actor on Twitter on Tuesday after the show aired.
