Check out this pic of the awesome Harry Potter cake made for the premiere of the last film!! :o how????? Maybe I should give up baking now… just kidding..but really, how?!
Well, yesterday I had my first Pin-Ups in Pinnies stall in full uniform. It was for a school’s 60th Anniversary party and was a real hit! The cake pops went especially well and sold out within the first hour! Here is a picture of me feeling very proud & smiley at my stall!

Wow, it’s been far too long since I posted on here! :s Will make an effort to be much more interesting from now on!! So, what’s happened since I last posted?! Well, I’ve performed in some great shows - last week I was at ‘Mama Sutras Box of Burlesque’ in Birmingham on Thursday & the special guest at ‘An Evening of Burlesque’ in Hull on Saturday. What fab shows to be a part of! They were both full to the brim of lovely fellow performers & great audience members.
It was also my birthday last week, and as a treat we went to go and watch a show for a change! It was Neil Kendall’s ‘Das Kabinet of Curiosities.’ I was blown away by the high calibre of acts, cheap yet tasty wine & great atmosphere!! All of which added up to a splendiferous night (and a slight headache the next day!) I got some lovely pressies too including a Lux de Ville hand bag from my gorgeous fiance, a Lux de Ville leopard print train case from my sister & mum (Lux de Ville did well from my birthday!), and lots of cake paraphenalia!
Last week also saw me attending a week long course with The Princes Trust regarding setting up my own business. It was amazingly informative and will be invaluable for my new business venture. I can’t wait to start writing out my business plan and getting the ball rolling on this!! I had a meeting on Wednesday to go through my next steps which involve uniform completion, promo shoot & market research - all of which I cannot wait to get started on! But first I have another busy weekend of performing ahead!! On Saturday I will be performing at the Officers Summer Ball on an army base (oo er!) and on Sunday I will be posing as a bearded lady on East Lancashire Railway steam train for people to drop in and draw - never a dull moment in this job!!!
So, for now I will sign off, with the promise to be much more reliable and interesting from now on!! x
I’m really pleased with my new logo for my baking venture ‘Pin-Ups in Pinnies’ by Nick Beedles - what do you think?! I’m in the process of getting my pin-up uniforms made as we speak then it’s on to sorting my website and we’ll be ready to go!!
Baking never looked so good ;)
Had a fantastic shoot today in Birmingham with Candee Photography! We took promotional shots for my 2 new acts - ‘Memento Mori’ and ‘By Moonlight.’ Here is a sneaky peak from the shoot! Will upload more soon..

Today I spent the day hunting round antique shops for vintage plates to make into cake stands and found this lovely framed giant moth! Great addition to my lounge of curiosities!!! Also picked up a gorgeous original 1950s dress :D
