Ballet News Selects… Cupcakes!

Ballet News Selects… something different

cupcakes with ballet dancer toppersWho doesn’t love a cupcake ? There comes a certain time of the day – usually about 4pm – when a cup of tea and a cupcake just makes good sense.

Here on Ballet News you can enjoy the long-running Cupcakes & Conversation interview series with professional ballet dancers (including just-promoted Meaghan Grace Hinkis from The Royal Ballet) while sipping your Earl Grey and wondering whether it’s ever going to stop raining.

I know that lots of industrious readers make their own cupcakes, and this set of 12 ballerina cupcake toppers made by the fabulously titled The Cakesmith from are, as you’d expect, unusual and slightly unexpected. They could be quite the talking point during afternoon tea! They cost £8 ($13.40) and international shipping is available. specialises in bringing unique and beautiful goods not readily available on the high street to their customers, and they are supporting British small businesses as they do so. So can you…

ballet shoesAnother gorgeous find from is these kitten heel Liberty print shoes made by Mandarina Shoes – as you know I’m a shoe-a-holic and I’ve never seen anything like these before!

At £100 ($167.59) they are more of an investment but they’d be perfect with many of the summer dresses I’ve selected over recent months. Again, international shipping is on offer if that’s relevant for you.  Maybe you need to send someone a really unique and thoughtful gift ?

I love the colours and the rich pink lining and I think these shoes would be fun to wear and pretty attention-seeking too! As you take your seat for a summer ballet performance and the lights dim, the lovely rose pink lining will still be singing to you…..
