As an avid fan of baked goods, I definitely couldn’t resist a show where someone bakes. Daliya Karnfsky, or the Bakeress, has adapted her YouTube series into a delicious treat of a live show. Dressed in red and donning an apron, she greets each audience member as they walk in and compares a few to baked good. I was an Oreo, which I’m OK with.
Using snippets of her show and questions from YouTube, the Bakeress answers questions about love, sex and relationships while using each ingredient of the gluten-free peanut butter vegan treats as a metaphor of the elements of a relationship. And there’s also dance breaks.
We shared a lovely moment when she asked the audience if they like fake or natural peanut butter. I said I liked my peanut butter unadulterated, which she greatly appreciated. Not only was this a clever and inventive solo show, Karnfsky’s charm and delicious treats are yummy goodness.
