Book Description

13 Feb 2014
Burlesque is a celebration of beauty and decadence, which are incidentally the best qualities of a cake, too! 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 Diamondback Cookies, before progressing to Minsky's Burlesque Theatre for a performance of Tempest Rose Cupcakes. Moulin Rouge offers up Passion Flower Cupcakes, before, finally a fully fledged star, you are ready to try the treats of the Cafe 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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Glamorous cake! 20 Feb 2014
Format:Hardcover
Baking comes away from the 'twee' and into the spotlight.

The cakes really do taste fabulous - I made the chocolate mud cake for a friend's party and not only did most of it disappear on the night, what little that was left still tasted great four days later, I was told. The projects range from the simple but stunning to the more challenging.

Cake should be the centrepiece of any celebration and Charlotte White's creations will certainly take centre stage.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Three Belles 27 Feb 2014
Format:Hardcover
We are a 1940s vocal trio, so we absolutely love the Burlesque world and Charlotte's book! It's great to learn how to decorate cakes just like Charlotte, every page is a delight to the eyes, with all the colours, pearls and flowers its a gal's dream! We are just waiting for the right occasion to crack out the champagne and bake and decorate our very own burlesque inspired cake.... We are thinking The Dita Von Tease cake..... YUM!

I bought this book because I've been to some of the author's baking 'events' - I call them that because they are so much more than just classes. It's a beautiful book that will become a firm favourite. The recipe instructions are easy to follow with glorious glossy photos to inspire you. It is a must have for anyone interested in making show stoppers and a would make a wonderful gift for your favourite baking enthusiast.

I saw Charlotte White demonstrating cake decorating at the Ideal Home Xmas Show and was hooked on her simple-to-follow tips that make even the most daunting of tasks look relatively easy! I got this book as a gift and whilst I'm not in the least talented in the cake/baking field I found the recipes that I've tried so far easy to follow with excellent results. As well as the intricate designs in the book that I can admire but not dare to undertake (yet!!!), there's several less-challenging projects for the novice like myself and with a little effort I've managed to turn out some pretty respectable looking cakes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cake decorators don't bother 10 May 2014
Format:Hardcover
As a cake decorator, this book and it's promise of 'Burlesque' cakes caught my eye, but it doesn't quite live up to its promise. I thought that overall the book was dissappointing, the cake designs were average and the few recipes are nothing that can't be found online. I am looking at this book as someone with a big interest in sugarcraft and I would have liked to see a few challenging designs, it's a shame, as I think it is a fabulous concept

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant book buy it for someone special 20 Feb 2014
Format:Hardcover
Purchased this book for my wife. Brilliant photos & baking ideas.

The international magazine for EVERYTHING Burlesque writes:
You may already have heard of Charlotte White, the gorgeous lady behind Restoration Cake who just launched Burlesque Baking.

If you haven’t, well let me introduce her to you. She is a lady with style and she bakes some yummy stuff . “Bespoke Wedding Cakes, Celebration Cakes and Cupcakes that taste as good as they look”, as she says.

Charlotte-white-burlesque-bakery-book

Charlotte explains: “Burlesque is all about glamour and spectacle and I try to make my cakes with these same principles in mind. I believe that cakes should be beautiful as well as tasting incredible as we eat first with our eyes.”

We met her for the first time at the World Burlesque Games in London last year as she revealed us a few secret ingredients of Burlesque Baking.

An afternoon cupcake interview is organised with her tomorrow, the 19th of February for as she loves Burlesque Bible magazine and wanted to do something special for our editor Helene Phillips. What a lucky one !

That this one below inspired by Immodesty Blaize not look fabulous ? Not only it looks AMAZING… but it also taste somptous. It’s a delight for both your eyes and your lips.
