Cake Fans Unite!

I think you all realise my love of food and fashion on this blog! I have a strong weakness for anything cakey and this editorial always comes to mind and makes me smile. It's from the June '08 issue of UK Vogue and it's nice to know that Tim Walker is a fan of cakey goodness too!
If I woke up to this scene everyday I would be a fatty...but a happy fatty! I love the precariously placed cake at the top of the bed canopy. This must have been a fun photo to take, can you imagine all the assistants placing the cakes around Tim Walker as he directs from the bed?

I went to see 'The Young Victoria' today at the cinema. The romantic, period drama was good with the fantastic Emily Blunt portraying Queen Victoria and Rupert Friend as Albert. The costume and settings were amazing but the film was a little short and actually, there was very little drama in it. After all, there wasn't too much to elaborate on the relationship between Victoria and Albert. If you watch BBC dramas then you'll like this but don't expect any real drama.

Even though the film was based on the young Victoria, I've always remembered when I was told in school how she hated black funerals and that her wish upon her death, was for London to be decorated in purple and white instead. It's strange when you realise she ruled 108 years ago. Somehow it doesn't seem that long ago, but it's a world away from what life is like now as well as the diminished power that the monachy holds now.

  1. if she did hate black funerals, then it says so much that she wore black for the rest of her life after albert died. i always thought people were mean about queen victoria in school.
    and OH GOD, tim walker....there are no words for that photograph but i think it embodies countless dreams i've had.

  11. Hello's...I love those pic's from Vogue, I've got them on my bedroom wall (my four wall's are like a collage due to ripping out various pic's all the time)
    Guess what? I made chocolate cake yesterday, how strange (though I suppose not so bizarre, as I'm sure its a popular past time, hehe!)
    Ooh I'm going to email you a snap shot of it, as we both appreciate a slice of cake, LOL!;)
    Peace and Bows...

  12. Oh I so need to watch that! I adore the period dramas the beeb do. And that Tim Walker feature in Vogue was fantastic, his description of photography and what it meant to him at a young age are so inspirational.

  20. 1st I love Emily Blunt. 2nd I love watching historical movies. The costumes are always great (even if the movie is not). It always makes me think about the flow of fashion. How what we wear now will one day be seem as distant as the clothes from 108 years ago.
