I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Donny McCaslin

Every now and then, I start a blog post and think it is going to be a quick write; I’ve got the idea, it’s there, I know what I want to say, but thoughts do not translate into words as readily as I would like. I started writing this blog post last Monday. My kitchen was full of the smells … Read More

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Noel Fielding

The process by which I select the subjects for my Monday blog post is far from scientific. My thought process is most often triggered by something I’ve seen in the news, a gig I’ve been too, a movie I’ve watched, something I need to get off my chest. I feel as if this week’s subject has been blessed by coincidence … Read More

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Dream Wife

I would love to claim that I have my finger on the pulse when it comes to new music but that would be a lie. My finger is mostly found scrolling Spotify back to David Bowie’s back catalogue and to my favourite playlist entitled ‘Is It New Wave’ to which the answer is always yes. Thankfully, not only does Chris … Read More

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Hollywood

This post contains my opinions and musings on an issue far too big for me to solve on one Monday morning. It should be regarded as opinion and musings only.  Hooray for Hollywood. I have loved you ever since I can remember and will love you until the day I die… but we need to talk about Harvey. When I … Read More

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… J.K. Rowling

I don’t read nearly as much a I would like to. When I do make the time to sit down with a book it is most often a historical biography and the extreme guilt that I feel for doing something so indulgent as reading when I should be working is overwhelming! This is the curse of the self-employed. Motivation has … Read More

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Stefani Germanotta

It should come as little surprise to learn that I am a big fan of Lady Gaga. I have been a fan for the best part of ten years now and count myself amongst her many ‘little monsters’ the world over. I am such a fan that I sported platinum bangs for a couple of years, very much under her … Read More

I Would Love to Bake a Cake For… Iris Apfel

In this second installment of the ‘I’ve just turned 35’ celebration on the blog, I wanted to talk about a style icon who is relatively new to my world. Last week, I imagined making a cake for Helen Mirren, someone who has been on my radar for many years. Today, I bake for a woman who I discovered only in … Read More

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Dame Helen Mirren

By the end of this week, I will officially be in my mid-thirties. Turning 35 does not worry me much – I am by no means having a panic or considering lying about my age from now on – but it does make me think as I march headlong into an age bracket that culminates with me turning 40. I … Read More

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

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
