Shelley Pratt – ‘TOTALLY BAKED’

If you are a reader of this blog (of course you are) then you will know I love cupcakes. I know it’s current pop culture fashion for everyone to love them right now, but I really do love the suckers. If you know this, then you will also know about the party I am hosting on the 27Th Feb. So of course, an Obnoxious Owl party would not be authentic if there were not individual mini cakes scattered about in the theme of, you guessed it, owls. Now who better to commission for these dope little mouthfuls than the ultra chic and ultra cool Shelley from ‘Totally Baked’? Hello and good evening, this lady made a bloody cake in the shape of an Emu Export Can and meat pie…I mean…WTF? Can you do that? Probs not. Homegirl got skillz……………So let’s have a little chinwag with this whippet of a girl…


SO MISS THANG, YOU ARE QUITE HANDY WITH THE ‘OL EGGS, FLOUR AND WATER AIN’T YA? WHEN AND HOW DID YOU DISCOVER YOU HAD THIS TALENT?
Ever since I was little I have liked to bake. I did a cake decorating class in high school, which I aced. It was loads of fun. Then got offered an apprenticeship as a pastry chef when I was 15, which I stupidly turned down to complete year 12. Idiot!

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CREATION?
I think my Emu Export beer cake was pretty good, considering I made it free hand, no design or template to go off. I am my own toughest critic, so the best is yet to come.


WHAT IS YOUR FLAVOUR OF CHOICE?
Can’t go past good old chocolate!!! Most of my cupcakes are chocolate and hazelnut, or white chocolate and almond. The ground nuts in them keep them moist and fluffy.
The bigger cakes have to be make out of dense cake like mud cake to keep them sturdy. But I can make just about any flavour, its all about experimenting.

FAVOURITE COLOUR ICING?
Black. Sounds a bit goth, but it just looks so shiny like plastic … like you should not eat it, but you can! And pink, its pretty.


YOU DEFINITELY DON’T EAT YOUR WARES, WHAT’S YOUR SECRET FOR YOUR TINY FRAME?
Good genetics. Thanks Dad!

WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO BAKE CUPCAKES FOR AND WHAT WOULD YOU MAKE THEM?
Johnny Depp … then he might want to marry me…. he he.

WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INSPIRATION?
I look at a lot of cakes on the internet which gives me ideas, and I just make things that I like. I want to make a Rubik’s cube, a hippopotamus (why not?) and a record player for a certain DJ whose birthday is coming up in April. Any suggestions are welcome!


HOW’S THAT OWL? PRETTY OBNOXIOUS OR WHAT??!
If you can get away with it … go for it!

  1. The woman is a true artist! Wow! Maybe I should emigrate to Oz…

  2. Savyra … that is incredible! where did you find this and where are you from? x

  3. Someone sent it to me on Facebook so can't claim any credit… but I love this kind of guerilla art. To me it's a major human kindness to do this for one's fellow beings.

    I'm from Cape Town but often think of spending time in Oz… you are having a disgustingly good time there, this I can see.

  4. Well you are in a pretty dope city my love, hit up Charlys bakery in the CBD and have a cupcake for me x
