Charlotte White understands this, and has paired these two artforms to create 25 tantalizing cakes and bakes. With a touch of lace, a shimmer of diamonds, or a flourish of vivid, exotic flowers, these cakes are all inspired by the costumes of genuine burlesque performers and openly push indulgence, teasing the tastebuds and widening the eyesâ€”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 Diamondback Cookies or a Cherry Shakewell Cake, before progressing to Minskyâ€™s Burlesque Theatre for a performance of Tempest Rose Cupcakes and Betty Mae Mini-cakes. Moulin Rouge offers up the Lady Lamour Cake and Passion Flower Cupcakes, before, finally a fully fledged star, you are ready to try the treats of the CafÃ© de Paris! Charlotte has one rule by which she lives: indulgence and decadence should be encouraged at all times and in all placesâ€”especially the kitchen!
