I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Elvis Presley

The 16th August this year marked 40 years since Elvis died. I couldn’t let this anniversary slide without some fanfare. There are some icons of pop culture who transcend the traditional rules of mortality – Elvis and I never shared a timeline but his music and his legend will be here long after I shuffle off this mortal coil. Icons … Read More

Foodies Festival Edinburgh PICTURES

Special thanks to Steven Todd at Flare Photography for this photo! Travelling to Edinburgh with Foodies Festival always feels like a homecoming of sorts. Foodies started in Edinburgh as a show running alongside the Edinburgh Festival, the idea being that chances were high that many of the visitors for the comedy and theatre and music may also be interested in … Read More

Wedding Cake Wednesday: Class in Blush and Deco for My Bestie

Despite many MANY years spent as a professional Cake Designer, there are still the occasional orders that throw me into a state of panic. These are always the ones that come in for people that I love. I wanted everything to be perfect for my dear friend Andrea and her Husband, Dave. I have known Andrea for 16 years now … Read More

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Bianca Del Rio

Boloney! Feeling bereft after devouring the most recent season (9) of RuPaul’s Drag Race, I found myself revisiting old friends. I basked in the comforting warmth of season 6 and reacquainted myself with Adore Delano, BenDeLaCreme, Courtney Act, and my all-time favourite queen, Bianca Del Rio. Apologies if you did not know that Bianca was crowned the winner of season … Read More

Rock Me, Amadeus

Of the many things that I get passionate about, music was probably my first love. I was fortunate because my Father is a musician and ran a music shop for the first 16 years of my life – there was always music to listen to and always instruments to play music on. My first documented live performance was at the … Read More

Foodies Festival Tatton Park PICTURES

What a weekend we had in Tatton Park! The crowds really came out for Foodies Festival and the sun put in an appearance too. It may not have been as hot as Blackheath had been the weekend before but at least we could successfully whip cream without it splitting! I cannot tell you what a pleasure it has been to … Read More

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… My Best Friends

We’ve known each other since September 2001, a month in which the world really did change forever. Aside from global events which make this date ominous, I very nearly missed my first days at The University of Westminster due to being unable to fly home to the UK from Chicago on September 12th as scheduled. We were all on the … Read More
