The REAL TeaseMaid since 2011! Take a peep at my blog: a sweet and sexy cocktail of Tea and Tease, a cupcake and cream-tea blog with a burlesque twist. Let's face it, afternoon tea is the most fun you can have with your clothes on! So read on for some tasty tit-bits that you're not gonna get from the 'old dears' at The Tea Guild.... ;-) If you fancy coming along to my monthly Clandestine Cake Club, see the link below. And don't forget to check out the date of my next 'Avon' retro cosmetic party "Cake It On".... Love from The TeaseMaid xox

'Eat Your Heart Out'

Eat Your Heart Out was a project I worked on with some incredibly talented bakers. A collaboration between myself and shock-tactic 'creative' Miss Cakehead (who had used the bakers previously) the main aim from the point of view of our fully qualified medical staff was to raise awareness of Pathology and Anatomy in a unique way. Lots of hard work went into ensuring the cakes were provocative but not gratuitous and juvenile, and I drew on my anatomy career and medical knowledge to devise the menu with the bakers who can literally create anything out of cake! I used my article about Funeral Biscuits, entitled 'Mourning Coffee' as the basis for my press night presentation, and you can read that on this blog. I also arranged a series of very short lectures to accompany the 3 day cake-fest, bribed security staff and WI members to volunteer and persuaded our powers-that-be to give us this opportunity to be unique in such a large organisation with a lot of rules and red tape. 
It wasn't easy, and I couldn't have done any of it without the wonderful Sarah Cox and her contacts in the Scientific media, her professionalism and her full support. It also would not have been possible whatsoever without the amazing bakers and I wanted to update this site with a thank you to everyone involved as I'm still receiving queries about this event and I hope the bakers are still receiving lots of work!!
