I love baking shows and now that Halloween is getting closer, I’m rewatching The Curious Creations Of Christine McConnell.
I know the show got a lot of bad reviews, but I enjoy it a lot. It’s silly, weird and just enough naughty to be fun. And so much darkness covered in sugar.
They say that the fastest way to a man’s heart is a power saw… but a delicious warm meal will work too.
And OMG the cake creations are amazing. I get in such a baking mood when watching this show, and I want to have a big Halloween party just so I can try out all my ideas.
One of the critiques I’ve seen of this show is the puppets, but for me it’s a total throwback to a bunch of the kids shows I saw as a kid, so I feel a bit nostalgic in a good way.
Another thing I like about the show is that there’s put a lot of weight on the whole “it’s supposed to be fun to create”. If you make mistakes, it’s okay, it’s just a cake. Your candle isn’t perfect? That’s just fine. I love that it’s more relaxed like that.
So, if you love baking, the weird, and the quirky, give The Curious Creations Of Christine McConnell a look this Halloween.
And, if you’re curious about her cakes, I have a Pinterest Board with some of her creations, both from the show and off it.
