Summary

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 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 Diamondback Cookies or a Cherry Shakewell Cake, before progressing to Minsky’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 Café de Paris! Charlotte has one rule by which she lives: indulgence and decadence should be encouraged at all times and in all places—especially the kitchen!
