Simply Scrumptious: Cake Baking and Femininity

Join Athena Bellas and special expert guest Carmel Cedro as they discuss the wonderful world of cake baking and femininity! Topics include: children’s cookbooks, girl’s celebration cakes, wedding cakes, the new trend of Gothic-themed girl’s cakes, Dolly Varden (Princess) cakes, and the conflict between our culture’s fetishization of food vs our cultural valorization of thinness, diets and self-discipline.

We hope you enjoy our podcast! Let us know your thoughts on facebook, twitter, or in the comments section below.

Carmel invites you to visit her (in-progress) website: and to email her at with photographs, stories and memories related to cake, baking and food trends.
