I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Or, the Notorious RBG as she is so appropriately sometimes called. If you have yet to meet this wonderful woman, allow this post to act as a little potted biography; Ruth Bader Ginsburg sits as a Justice on the Supreme Court of the United States (pleasingly abridged to SCOTUS, though I seem incapable of pronouncing that without a superfluous R). … Read More

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Elton John

Or should I say, for Sir Elton Hercules John? I mean, if you’re going to give yourself a stage name, be sure to include a killer middle name. Last week I went to the cinema to see Rocketman (Dexter Fletcher, 2019) and – you guessed it – I adored it! I’ve loved Elton John’s music for many years now and … Read More

Fantasy Bakes: Lady Gaga

Are you surprised that I am a fan of Lady Gaga? No, I thought not. I admire hard work more than anything so, watching Gaga’s OSCAR acceptance speech, in which she reminded everyone at home that success needs working at, made me love her even more. Maybe it’s time to revisit those platinum bangs that I had in 2009… Listen … Read More

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Elle Woods

My public service announcement for the week is that Legally Blonde (Robert Luketic, 2001) is available to stream on Netflix. For many years now, this has been my ‘comfort movie’ and been there like a cinematic cuddle from a warm cup of cocoa as the world whirls around me. I love this film so much that it was my go-to … Read More

Fashion On Friday: Parisian Wardrobe Part Deux

As promised, here is the remainder of my ‘capsule’ wardrobe that I put together to take to Paris this September. I am sure that I packed far too many items for it to have been a true capsule wardrobe but, for me, this is restraint at the highest level! Anyone who knows me will agree that this is my version … Read More

Fashion On Friday: I’m In Love

I know that I promised you part two of my Parisian wardrobe adventure… that is coming, I promise. I wanted to take a brief interlude as I was so excited to receive my latest slogan jumper from Joanie Clothing. To be honest, this may be the start of a growing addiction. When Joanie Clothing reached their second birthday earlier this … Read More

Wedding Cake Wednesday: Jungle Eleganza

It’s not often that I have the opportunity to share a new wedding cake with you – these days, my schedule of touring with Foodies Festival means that I am mostly unavailable in wedding season! I am tricky to book but I do still love making bespoke wedding cakes. For James and Nicole, I was lucky enough to have a … Read More

Fashion on Friday: Parisian Wardrobe

I’ve been delayed in sharing these pictures with you in the aftermath of my wonderful Parisian getaway in September – as is so often the case, I came back to loads of things that needed doing, cakes that needed baking, etc. However, I have been asked so will share with you my version of a capsule wardrobe fit for exploring … Read More

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Vivienne Westwood

Last week I watched the excellent Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist (Lorna Tucker, 2018) and was reminded of my love for Vivienne Westwood. Her enduring punk aesthetic with influences from historical costuming light up any runway and make my heart sing to look on them. I do not see myself as any kind of authority on fashion – indeed, how can … Read More

Fashion on Friday: Wisteria Hysteria

As we start to put Summer fashion to bed and dream of tartan prints, heavy fabrics, and gloves (oh, the gloves I have in waiting for Autumn/Winter!), there are still a few more sunny day dresses to be enjoyed. I wanted to share this beauty with you. Hysteria Floral Wisteria Print Dress from Joanie Clothing RRP £45 (click image for … Read More
