Nina Bo’nina Brown – Sébastien Haramendy
I chose to pay tribute to probably the craziest and most creative queen so far: Nina Bo’nina Banana Fofana Osama Bin Laden Brown! It was hard to pick, but I decided to represented 4 of her most iconic runway looks :
her Minnie Mouse entrance look,
her Peach Home City runway,
her Princess Zathena eleganza,
her Skull Club Kid couture.

Baker’s description of piece:
when I saw Ariel Versace in her star sign themed Aries outfit I knew I had to make her.
There was something about all the pastel pinks and purples that caught my eye. I had intended to make a full figurine, but life got in the way, so I present an Ariel Versace cupcake topper!

This splendid Kim Chi cake was made by Jean Schapowal.
I’m Antonio, I’m Italian and I live and work in Belgium, where I own “La Cucina Delle Zie”, a cake studio specialised in bespoke creations for weddings and celebrations. I started making cakes after having quit my career as a lawyer looking for something more challenging and creative. I have a soft spot for royal icing and sugar flowers and fondant textures. I love old movies, Russian literature and decorative arts.
My collaboration piece represents Plastique Tiara, I chose her because of her amazing glamourous looks and stylish attitude.
My Name is Kara Heather, I am based in Braintree, Essex, UK. I am a married Mum of 2 grown up daughters and have been caking for about 20 years. I started off doing a three year cake course in royal icing and making flowers and basic figures. Most of what I do today is self taught. My greatest cake achievement was purchasing my airbrush which I’d be lost without. I have a small cake business and my favourite cakes are animals, bags and shoes.
