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

A Vivien Leigh Inspired Cake Tutorial

I fell in love with Gone With The Wind (1939) in my early teens; the tale of Scarlett O’Hara and her weird obsession with Ashley Wilkes, when Rhett Butler is infinitely more fanciable, captured my heart and never let go. It is pure melodrama and a feast for the eyes in glorious Technicolor. Bizarrely, I find myself wary of spoilers in … Read More

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen

It has been like an episode of Changing Rooms in my home this weekend. Sadly, I played the part of flustered designer rather than that of the homeowner, sent away for the weekend whilst the transformations take place. After last week’s Fashion on Friday, I decided to ‘break ground’ on improvements to my dressing room. The mega-wardrobes are ordered… but … Read More

Wedding Cake Wednesday: 100% Vegan Rip Reveal Cake

I couldn’t resist sharing these pictures with you; taken by the incredible photographer Sassy of Assassynation, this is the cake that I made for Adam and Leanne’s Wedding a couple of weeks ago. This isn’t a traditional Wedding Cake Wednesday post where I talk you through the design process from consultation to the finished cake because I have literally nothing … Read More

Fashion on Friday: Jenny from the Block

My first ever vintage-inspired dress came from Vivien of Holloway. I remember the first time that I tried it on, all black with white polka dots and a red petticoat underneath, carefully walking down the stairs to show Chris, unable to see my own feet as I walked because my skirt was enormous. I was hooked. I twirled and twirled … Read More

Fashion on Friday: What Katie Did Christmas Soirée

I can think of no nicer place to celebrate Christmas than in the What Katie Did Boutique, nestled away in the quieter corners of Portobello Market. Surrounding myself with the very best dressed ladies and gentlemen in town, and countless pieces of delicately stitched yet perfectly lump’n’bump taming underwear could easily become part of my festive routine! I have written before … Read More

Foodies Festival Xmas at Tatton Park

What a wonderful weekend we had in chilly Cheshire, celebrating all things festive at Foodies Festival Christmas. Our mini-theatre was set amongst stalls selling all manner of delicious treats – the mulled wine and brownies for immediate enjoyment, as well as the truckle cheese and fancy liqueurs that I know I have already started stocking up on for the big … Read More

The Goodwood Revival 2017 PICTURES

If I am completely honest, I am still very much recovering from all the fun we had over the weekend at The Goodwood Revival. Yes, the weather was appalling but that did not spoil the shopping or the baking in The Kenwood Kitchen Theatre! My menu this year was inspired by all things Italian – a Tiramisu Cake and Sicilian … Read More

Foodies Festival Ally Pally PICTURES 

How on earth is it nearly the end of the Foodies Festival summer season? I cannot quite believe that our final show of the summer is this weekend and starts tomorrow! This means that you have one final chance to visit a Foodies Festival this summer – we will be in Oxford on South Parks from Friday 1st September until … Read More
