    Fantasy Bakes: The Joker

    Fantasy Bakes: The Joker

    Give a writer a gift; a villain as old as Batman with no name or origins upon which they may create a character. The Joker has the potential to become to future generations of actor as defining a role as any Shakespearean villain. I love each and every Joker just a little in his own special way and would love to bake a cake for The Joker. In this episode of Fantasy Bakes, I discuss The Joker as seen on screen and take my film degree out for a spin.

    Of course, these are just my humble opinions. Who is your favourite on-screen Joker? I cannot decide but prefer to pick according to my mood.

    Fantasy Bakes: Dita Von Teese

    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.

    Fantasy Bakes: The Cure

    Fantasy Bakes: The Cure

    I’ve always lacked the nerve to meet my heroes and had always believed that you should never meet them. Then I met my Husband whose love of The Cure led to precious time spent with the band over the last 30+ years, which makes me question my stance on this. The Cure are icons and are also surprisingly lovely. I would love to bake them a cake… again.

    This episode is extra special because it features an interview with my Husband Chris White, co-author of The Cure’s official fanzine Cure News. Chris has known the band since 1985 and, along with Janie Webber, worked tirelessly to share their incredible access to the band with fans across the world in the days before the internet and social media made these things instant and easy.

    This episode is a love letter to the band and to the fans, friends that I have made along the way.

    You can listen to the exclusive playlist that Chris has curated (Cure-ated?) for you on Spotify by clicking here or streaming below:



    It’s the perfect introduction to the band if you have only ever listened to Friday I’m In Love on the radio. Believe me, The Cure are so much more than their biggest commercial hit – even though it is a brilliant tune!

    Fantasy Bakes: She-Ra

    Fantasy Bakes: She-Ra

    She-Ra was something different; she was a girl like I was a girl. The 1980s original She-Ra may be far from woke but the overall image of a woman saving the day was a good one to grow up on. This is the story of She-Ra and of one little girl growing up believing that she too could defeat the forces of evil with a sword and a unicorn.

    I would love to bake a cake for She-Ra. I’d make her my White Chocolate & Raspberry Cheesecake because… well… it’s super pink.

    If you have never seen an episode of 1980s She-Ra, here are the opening titles to catch you up. They are pretty self-explanatory!

    And because I promised you Skeletor, here is a brilliant compilation of the most maniacal villain ever to be drawn. He is bad, he’s drawn that way.

    Fantasy Bakes: RuPaul

    Fantasy Bakes: RuPaul

    As host of the Emmy Award winning RuPaul’s Drag Race, RuPaul has done so much over the past decade to increase the visibility of LGBTQ+ people and issues on TV. As a cis-gender straight woman who sees herself as an ally, being afforded the chance to peak behind the velvet curtain and learn is something that I am grateful to Mama Ru for.

    Listen and subscribe to Fantasy Bakes on iTunes by clicking here.

    Listen and follow Fantasy Bakes on Spotify by clicking here.

    RuPaul says that we are all ‘born naked and the rest is drag.’ Girl, can I get an amen up in here?



    I would love to bake a cake for RuPaul this Pride Month and any day of the mother-tucking year! Here’s a cheeky rainbow number that I whipped up for one of the legal firms who passed the Marriage Equality Act here in the UK. Yes, I’m showing off because I am proud!
