Pastry Artist Christine McConnell Makes Amazing Freddie Mercury Birthday Cake
If you love cooking shows and horror, you’re going to want to tune in to Netflix’s new goth baking show, The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell. The series features baker/model/artist Christine McConnell whipping up a variety of food, baked goods, and crafts based on her love of horror and the macabre. She accompanied by burlesque icon Dita Von Teese, and a handful of Henson Alternative puppets as her co-stars.
“#BohemianRhapsody will be in theaters Nov 2nd and @20thCenturyFox asked me to make a cake for an event they’re having on Freddie’s Birthday today! I’ve always loved Queen and am nothing if not gaudy, so I went a little over the top… It’s a Victoria Sponge cake with a white Chocolate bust of #FreddieMercury. Everything is edible and delicious aside from the supports and the gum paste roses… which taste like sugared drywall,” she wrote.
