To celebrate the impending home entertainment release of Cinderella, Disney teamed up with Honestly Healthy chef Natasha Corrett for a day of baking fit for a princess. Guests and their little helpers gathered at Cactus Kitchens in South London (home of the Saturday Kitchen live set) for a baking masterclass where they learnt to make a Cinderella inspired feast of pumpkin gnocchi and courgette and blueberry muffins with a pale blue cashew icing.

2015’s stunning live-action Cinderella will be available for fans to own on Disney Blu-Ray TM & DVD from 24TH August. Inspired by the timeless images of Disney’s 1950s masterpiece, Sir Kenneth Branagh (Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, Thor) updated this beloved fairy-tale for a whole new generation, which delighted cinema audiences on its theatrical release earlier this year.
