I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Courtney Act

I have written about my love of drag before in a Monday post dedicated to Bianca Del Rio, the Queen of Queens. I love everything about drag and I think that I always have; from a childhood spent watching Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon disguising themselves as women in Some Like It Hot (Billy Wilder, 1959), to the gay club hostesses … Read More

Foodies Festival 2018: Oxford

Last week, I shared the penultimate show in the Foodies Festival summer season with you after quite a delay. What can I say? Life gets in the way but I did not want to leave these last shows without their proper round up. To say that our final show of the summer in Oxford was special would be an understatement. … Read More

Foodies Festival 2018: Edinburgh

The eagle-eyed amongst you may have noticed that there were a couple of posts missing from my blog this summer – there were never posts about Foodies Festival Edinburgh or Oxford, despite posts after every other show. The reasons for this were not malicious but rather the result of my workload and, after Edinburgh, a short period of feeling a … Read More

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Dita Von Teese

On Saturday night, I attended a Burlesque show in London. I have been to countless such shows but this one was special; the venue was the iconic London Palladium and the headline performer was the equally iconic Dita Von Teese. Not since Gypsy Rose Lee has a single name been so synonymous with Burlesque. I am willing to bet that … Read More

It’s been amazing sharing sunny days and so much sweet stuff with you all. Today, I am sharing the pictures from Birmingham BUT we will be back on the road this weekend – you can come … Read More

Foodies Festival 2018 Syon Park

Well, it only took me a full week and a bit to recover from Foodies Festival Syon Park. I’d say that is a pretty swift recovery! Looking through the pictures on my phone, I cannot believe that this show was over a week ago and I cannot quite believe the show that we put on. I’m passionate about showcasing new … Read More

Foodies Festival 2018 Brighton

The sun shone gloriously upon our first Foodies Festival outing of 2018 on Brighton’s Hove Lawns. The Bank Holiday weekend may feel like a long time ago now but with show two hot on its heels, I’ve only just now had the time to go through all of the amazing photographs we took. Before I share them all with you … Read More

Fashion On Friday: Hello Sailor

There could have been no more perfect frock for a day by the sea than the Brette Striped Swing Dress from Collectif. For the first day of Foodies Festival 2018, I chose this navy and white striped number with its delicate anchor-shaped buttons to metaphorically sail into the new season! My absolute favourite detail of this dress is its perfect … Read More

Foodies Festivals Summer 2018

I cannot quite believe that the Summer season has come around so quickly! This weekend Foodies Festival will kick off on Hove Lawns in Brighton and I will be back as the host of The Cake & Desserts Theatre. In case you didn’t make it along to a show last year, this is us… The Cake & Desserts Theatre is … Read More

Wedding Cake Wednesday: Five Tiered Floral & Flutter

I do love making Wedding Cakes for my friends. Generally, these are the poor souls who trust me enough to let me just kind of run with their ideas and be creative. Jonny and Gina were one such couple and, as we gathered to celebrate their wedding on 14th April, the sun even put in an appearance for the first … Read More
