Lily says...

 

'English Singing Baker is an outlet for my twin passions - singing and baking. Originally, the idea came from baking at home and listening, or mainly singing along, to my favourite soundtrack as I baked.

 

Singing has always been a part of me and having sung for 7 years with Southwark Cathedral Girl's Choir and performed with English Cabaret all over the UK, I felt ready to work up some of my own choice of material into a cabaret persona.

 

I am also a keen self taught baker - baking at any available opportunity and watching the professionals at work and learning new techniques from Food TV.

 

Since 2014, the English Singing Baker has evolved from being a cabaret persona, over two years at C South at the Edinburgh Fringe to becoming online entertainment.

 

Over the two years of English Cabaret Hour, I learnt a lot about baking in performance. I loved singing my choice of songs as well as baking however it was more stressful on the production side than I expected. It was however fantastic to distribute cakes or biscuits to the audience and see the immediate reaction on their faces.

 

Moving on from the English Cabaret Hour, I decided that it would be interesting to transfer my onstage work online into a series of videos named 'ESB Monthly Bake' Throughout 2016, my plan is to upload a video with one of my new baking creations alongside a selection of 4 songs. I hope to reach out to a bigger audience and inspire people to enjoy baking new recipes with a rediscovered song soundtrack.'
