Netflix has a creepy sweet treat this Halloween: 'The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell' feat. the "Queen of Creepy Cakes"
Netflix is set to release a spooky baking series called 'The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell' on October 12
Halloween is around the corner, and guess what Netflix has in store for us? The streaming giant is coming up with a brand new show- ‘The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell’ - starring the 37-year-old as herself.
Christine McConnell is already an established Instagram star, who first rose to fame in 2013 when she posted an image of her multitasking on Reddit. Hailed as the "Queen of Baking," McConnell has been now killing it on social media with her non-traditional baking skills.
Her creation not only surpasses the generic standard of desserts, in fact, but she also takes it up a notch by drawing inspiration from shows such as 'Munsters' and Dark shadows' which she once watched as a child. In 2016, McConnell also published her first book ‘Deceptive Desserts: A Lady’s Guide to Baking Bad!'
Her recent creations include an alien pie, a Halloween-themed birthday cake, and a caterpillar croissant which have impressed her followers on Instagram.
‘The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell’ is a baking show but, to quote McConnell herself from an interview she gave to Myrecipes, “It’s like if Morticia Addams stopped in the middle of the movie and started explaining how to bake cookies.”
McConnell, as she says, always thought of making her show like she portrays her life on Instagram, with spooky cakes and pies. She was thus thrilled when Netflix confirmed her on the show. It met the expectations she had from a non-traditional baking show.
“There were a million opportunities for people to say ‘no,’” McConnell says. “But they just kept saying ‘yes.’ I feel like I won the lottery and I never even bought a ticket” Myrecipes quoted McConnell.
This show with a "wickedly talented baker and artists Christine McConnell," as described by Netflix, is set to premiere on October 12. So, get your spatulas and costumes ready!
