Cake or death?

Carla Valentine

One of the great things about this project is the variety of members we come across. Take Carla Valentine. A member of Shoreditch Sisters WI in east London since 2011, her unique slant on death-themed cake marries one of her all-time loves of baking with her fascinating day job as Technical Assistant Curator at Barts Pathology Museum in London. Dressed up to the nines in a Miss Scarlett apron, Carla looked quite the retro siren as she talked us through a very tasty recipe in her kitchen; it was a conversation peppered with ‘morbid morsel’ facts – who knew that icing sugar spleen and nutmeg liver were real medical conditions! We can’t give too much away but Carla, who has recently featured in Stylist to name but one of several magazines (and has just dyed her hair an amazing shade of fiery red), is definitely one to watch.
