I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Joan Crawford

In last week’s post, I told you all how completely and utterly obsessed I am with You Must Remember This, the podcast exploring all things classic Hollywood by Karina Longworth. I spent the tail end of last week working on a magazine cake commission and listening to the series ‘Six Degrees of Joan Crawford’. What a fascinating creature Joan Crawford … Read More

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Karina Longworth

This post feels like proper fangirling but, I’m just going to roll with it. Today, I would love to bake a cake for Karina Longworth.

Foodies Festival Blackheath PICTURES

What a weekend. I think these pictures speak for themselves and how much fun we all had at Foodies Blackheath. Day One came with a Wimbledon theme brought by Lorna Robertson and Nicola Milbank.

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Rick Wakeman (Reprise)

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Adam West

Or should that be Adam We? Whilst drafting my last fantasy bake post about my favourite Superman, Christopher Reeve, sad news came in of the passing of Adam West, my favourite Batman. I think that we become quite emotionally attached to our perception of characters in childhood; I have a friend who was disappointed with the depiction of characters in the Lord … Read More

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

My workload this week has kept me quiet across my usual chatty channels! I’ll be filming something rather lovely for you tomorrow and preparations for this have kept me busy.  I thought I’d share the absurdity of working surrounded by poinsettia blooms in the middle of June!  Loads of behind-the-scenes fun coming up for you tomorrow.

Foodies Festival is in Birmingham this Weekend!

Good afternoon, you gorgeous lot! How have we all been coping with this crazy heatwave?

I am looking forward to plenty of sunshine this weekend though … Read More
