"What a great idea!!!!"

Broadway's Laura Osnes

Hello everyone! I'm English Singing Baker, and I am looking for your support to produce 3 new 30 minute episodes with recipes inspired by my favourite musicals. Read more below...
In this series, I will share with you 6 brand new recipes I have created inspired by my favourite musicals including Waitress, Newsies and more! In each episode I will share my musical theatre knowledge with insight on the shows history, my discovery of it and what inspired me to create each bake. You can see the full episode list below!
I want to share my love of musicals with you and inspire others to bake my recipes to keep theatre magic alive in a year when it has been out of the spotlight.  So, join me in my kitchen to be transported to my world of musicals. 

You can listen to the songs which will feature in the episodes by clicking here!

I'd love for you to join me as I bring these shows to light in a new and fresh way!

You can find out more at my website - englishsingingbaker.com.

MY STORY SO FAR...

I'm Lily Casson (lilycasson.com), a singer and actress, who loves to bake and English Singing Baker is my alter-ego. This idea originally came about during a backstage chat during The Happy Prince at the Edinburgh Fringe. It was inspired by my love of baking at home whilst singing along to the soundtracks of my favourite musicals.

English Singing Baker made her onstage debut as part of English Cabaret Hour at the Edinburgh Fringe 2014, live baking mini cupcakes to hand out to the audience with a musical selection of standards. The next year, she returned with another stage baked recipe for Cinderella Shortbread with music inspired by the famous fairy-tale.

Following this stage debut, I moved my alter-ego online with a series of YouTube videos, ESB Monthly Bakes, with a new bake and accompanying songs with my trusty yellow ukulele, showing  how to make the recipes step by step onscreen. 

In 2017, I began blogging about my tuneful baking life on A Baker’s Diary. Since then, I have shared recipes for my favourite bakes and travels to share my love for everything baking with a larger audience. 

On Love Theatre Day 2020, I released an ebook of recipes inspired by my favourite musicals, ESB Musical Bakes, to accompany the soundtrack I Heart Musicals. Each recipe visually conjured up these shows in a fresh way to bring alive the magic of theatre in a time when it has been out of the spotlight.
