Emily Attack has one of the most famous families in showbiz — and even her cousin is a star on Netflix who appeared on the quiz hit Pointless.
Molly Robbins, daughter of children’s TV legend Ted Robbins, is one of the stars of Netflix’s Extreme Cake Makers.
Back in 2018, Molly landed her own Channel 4 show, which follows her and a group of elite bakers who try their hand at creating the most jaw-dropping treats.
Molly, who owns her own company, Creative Cakes, has designed some excellent cakes, including a ballgown-shaped cake and a 4-foot replica of the Statue of Liberty.
Molly’s sweet treats are designed to look like burgers, pies and pizza and are made from Madeira cakes, jams, and butter cream.
She has won two gold and two silver awards at the Cake International Competition since she began baking and plans to continue competing.
She said: “I earned a degree in special effects makeup so I was always creative, but after watching my friend make a cake it’s something I fell into – I never learned the art of cake decorating; I just taught myself I went along.
“I love making cakes that are out of the box and quirky because they are more interesting and hopefully it sets me apart from other companies.
“I think the weirdest cake I’ve ever had to order on an order is the Cheese Board Cake because I was out there trying to make Stilton’s perfectly moldy—which is obviously not something you can really enjoy.” I want on cake.
“I like to make them as realistic as possible which can take hours on end, I like to use different textures of icing and I airbrush most cakes to give them an extra realistic look.”
Molly also posted a throwback photo from her time on the gameshow Pointless.
She wrote: “A lovely surprise to see me and Aunt @katerobbins on #pointlesscelebs this evening (Happy birthday to Kate today too!).”
Phoenix Knights star Ted is the brother of Emily’s mother.
Emily’s famous mother is Kate Robbins, she is also an actress and was a singer in the 1980s – most recently appearing in EastEnders.
He represented the UK as part of the band Prima Donna and finished third overall.
Meanwhile, Emily’s dad Keith produced some of the top hits in the 1970s.
Emily is also related to the legendary singer Sir Paul McCartney, mum Kate the Beatles icon’s cousin.
Emily has been seen walking backstage with the music legend’s fashion designer daughter Stella McCartney at one of her shows in Paris.
