And as it was his first live TV bake, Rahul wanted everything to go well.
But unfortunately for him the demonstration started off a little dicey, as he put all of the ingredients into a bowl and began whisking them.
As he powered on his electric whisk a large dusting of flour flew up and covered Ruth Langsford.
Desperate to make amends Rahul hurriedly yelled: “Oh, sorry!”
Keeping the show together Ruth responded: “Oh, it’s all right!”
Rahul continued: “It’s just me again,” commenting on his history of clumsy moments.
And Rahul’s first outing on live TV didn’t get any quieter as he continued baking.
While creating the filling of his cupcakes Eamonn Holmes began urging him to speed up his process.
He nudged the baker: “We’re just trying to hurry you up a bit, Rahul.”
To which he mumbled: “Oh okay, that’s okay.”
Once the baking was over Rahul urged the presenters to try the bakes, saying: “I hope you like it! Do you like it?”
Earlier on in the show Rahul told the presenters about his history in baking.
Although his mother taught him to cook, Rahul revealed he really concentrated his efforts on the skill when he first arrived in England.
He went on: “The first cake I made was when my parents first visited me about two years ago for my birthday.
“It was all right, not the greatest – it was okay, edible.”
Earlier on in the show Ruth and Eamonn were victim to an awkward show blunder.
Whilst introducing Rahul to the show the duo explained he was due on at 12.15pm.
However the on-screen time was displayed as 12.45pm, leaving viewers a little confused.
One viewer tweeted: “ThisMorning you have displayed the wrong time for the Bake Off section you displayed 12.45.”
Another added: “Why does it say Rahul at 12:45 isn’t Loose Women on at 12:30 the correct time should be 12:15 @thismorning #ThisMorning.”
This Morning airs weekdays at 10.30am on ITV.
