Fantasy Bakes: Dita Von Teese

She is the Queen of Burlesque and a style icon. If Dita Von Teese has made any other woman feel as good about themselves as she has made me feel – though her embracing of her looks and celebration of her body – then she deserves all the cake! You see, it’s not about how big or small, how tanned or pale you are, but how fabulous you feel.

The art of Burlesque is one that has been close to my heart for many years and was the inspiration for my first book Burlesque Baking (Ryland Peters & Small, 2014). In this book, I created a cake inspired by Dita’s ‘Powder Puff’ routine and also for many other equally amazing performers.
