Pound Cake – Mini Baker from Mini Baker on Vimeo.

I don’t know any girl that wouldn’t jump at the chance to get her hair and make-up done. Its the best feeling to be all done up and sexy! 

We have the privilege of knowing Christina Cessna & Jo Baker. Christina is a hair stylist at Bungalow Salon and has been doing my hair for a few years now (no this blond hair is not natural, unfortunately). And Jo Baker is a make-up artist from Britain. Both ladies are so amazing at what they do, and are truly the best at their craft. 
We decided to switch up the format of the new Mini Baker “Sweet Stories” to be a little bit more vintage, sexy and artsy. Hope you like what you see! Please share with your friends!

That might be the cutest baking video I've ever seen. I would love to have people get me all dressed up and watch me bake. And the cake looks wonderful too!
