I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Quentin Tarantino

Good morning, you gorgeous lot. I am (being brutally honest here…) still recovering from yesterday spent serving teas and coffees and Salted Caramel Millionaire’s Shortbread at Foxy Belles Summer Shakedown AND an evening at The Death Do Us Part Danger Show. I’m pooped! It was whilst at the evening cabaret, with all of its knife-throwing, fire-breathing, burlesque dancing goodness, that … Read More

Weekend Bakes: The Next Best Thing

I mentioned yesterday that I will be at Foxy Belles Summer Shakedown on Sunday with my Salted Caramel Millionaire’s Shortbread. This feels very mean as I know that there will be many of you who cannot get to Bedford Esquires this weekend. I hope that this recipe will be the next best thing. You can rest assured that I will … Read More

My Lemon Drizzle Cake with Italian Meringue

When I promise you a recipe, you will get a recipe! And then some… Yesterday, I enjoyed a fantasy slice of cake with Burlesque superstar Immodesty Blaize and I described how I would love to bake her a Lemon Drizzle Cake with Italian Meringue. Poor form on my part to tease you all with a recipe that I had not … Read More

I am blessed to work with some fantastic clients and gorgeous couples on Bespoke Celebration … Read More

Weekend Bakes: Give the Oven a Weekend Off!

All the summer arrived at once, right? This pale girl is melting and hiding in the shade! Assuming that we will keep a little of the warm weather into the weekend (because I am the eternal optimist) I thought that you may wish to stay away from hot ovens. Your Weekend Bake requires no baking and I strongly suggest that … Read More

Wedding Cake Wednesday: Just Like Grace Kelly

It’s Wednesday so I thought I would share the story of one of my Wedding Cakes with you. I like alliteration – as you may have noticed from my books Burlesque Baking and Deliciously Decorated – so the relative neatness of a Wedding Cake Wednesday appeals to me! I’ll keep this particular post short and sweet as I have been … Read More

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Fanny Cradock

It’s Monday and smack back to reality after the weekend. Well, not quite! My Monday mornings are dedicated to avoiding reality at all costs with my little flight of fantasy bakes. Last week I baked a cake for Groucho Marx and the week before for Nigella Lawson. Who needs reality? Today, I would like to bake a cake for Fanny … Read More
