Before we’d even met Andy, we knew he’d be our kind of person!
We arrived at the princely Duke of Cornwall hotel (the oldest hotel in Plymouth) early Saturday evening.
As we loaded our booth equipment into the party room (carefully avoiding a collision with the bakers and their beautiful birthday cake), we chatted to Andy’s Mum and Dad about the family and how the theatre is a big deal in the Statton household. We love the theatre too – Laurence was in ‘Oliver’ back in the days of black & white tellies and 7 inch singles and our family practically live at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre (these days we’re more likely to be found nibbling on a quiche during the summer season at the Minack Theatre in Cornwall).
Everyone had such a good time – family, school friends, the drama club … us! How could you miss with such a lovely host, the DJ playing all the show tunes …. and Justin Timberlake!
And That Cake!
Not only did it look amazing – each tier of loveliness decorated with bite sized posters of shows that have had an impact on Andy’s life – musicals that he’s starred in himself and favourite ones too – wow! It tasted AMAZING!! I take my cake tasting responsibilities very seriously – and these bakers, Viva Las Cakes are up there with the Cake Boss!
What a night! The photo booth didn’t stop for a moment all evening – there are loads and loads of pictures to laught at!!
Thank you so much for booking Yellowbooth, Andy! It was great to meet you. Caz & Laurence xx
