Burlesque Baking : The art of show-stopping, decadent cakes and bakes Hardback
Charlotte White understands this, and has paired these two artforms to create 25 tantalizing cakes and bakes, all inspired by the costumes of genuine burlesque performers and which openly push indulgence, teasing the tastebuds and widening the eyes - after all, the art of Burlseque is the art of putting on a show!
This is a baking book for women who are unashamedly feminine but staunchly anti-twee.
Starting with basic recipes for the cakes and cookies, these baking and sugar-crafting projects are arranged into four levels of complexity, and written in a clear step-by-step style.
Start your Burlesque career at the old fashioned Gaiety Theatre, with simple designs for Miss Lady Alex cookies or a cherry shakewell cake, before progressing to Minsky's Burlesque Theatre for a performance of Miss Tempest Rose cupcakes and Betty Mae mini-cakes.
Moulin Rouge offers up the Lady Lamour cake and Miss Rainbow Sparkles mini-cakes, before, finally a fully fledged star, you are ready to try the treats of the Cafe de Paris!
