    Having worked with the likes of Mulberry, Lanvin, Stella McCartney, Dolce & Gabbana, House of Holland, and Fred Butler, Katie Franklin boasts a client list that would put some supermodels to shame.

    What does she do for them, you ask? Well, as the baking genius behind Pomp de Franc Cake Society, the former fashion assistant is the person to call when a fashion label needs some sweet treats for a runway show, special event, or, you know, a series of custom gingerbread houses.

    Franklin's studio just off Brick Lane houses her culinary arsenal (we've never seen so much icing and sprinkles) and puts the baker in close proximity to East London's coolest haunts. Though we had to peel ourselves away from the gooey, bright-blue cake she was whipping up at the time, we headed out with Franklin to a few of her favourite local spots. Click through to see what's cookin' in this baker's hood.
