IRISH ENTERTAINER ADELE King, more commonly known as Twink, has kick-started a second career selling cakes.

Speaking on RTÉ’s Brendan O’Connor Show this morning the panto star discussed her new venture at her stall in Bushy Park in Terenure.

“This is something I’ve done since, I can’t even think when, three, four, five years of age. I come from a family of bakers and decorators and it is something that I would have to say has been a parallel part of my life with entertainment.

“I think the biggest shock was to my fellow traders. I think there was a bit of, ‘err, hello, excuse me, what?’, which I didn’t blame them for. These are people that do this for a living, all their lives,” she said.

She went on to emphasise that her lemon drizzle cake was a particular speciality.

King was appearing on the programme this morning with her dog Teddy Bear who was famously stolen last September. Discussing her pets, she became emotional about the death of her dog Bertie Ahern.

One thing that was made clear during the course of the interview was that she had no intention of giving up the pantomime stage as had been reported earlier in the week.

On this, she said that “she had always been an entertainer”, and that while she was enjoying her current works with the cakes there was no telling what would happen in the future.

King also became emotional when discussing her Georgian house in Rathfarnham, which she speculated that she would probably have to sell at some point in the near future.
