The ‘Smile’ singer – who is marrying building firm boss Sam Cooper in Gloucestershire on June 11 – has been practising her culinary skills in the kitchen in the hope that she will impress judges and took to her twitter account to say she is pleased with the results.
She wrote: “I just made a kickass chocolate mousse cake, in preparation for my local baking competition. (sic)”
The star is brushing up on her domestic skills for when she becomes a wife and has made no secret of her desire to lead a domesticated family life, and is even planning a rural-themed wedding.
In her documentary mini-series ‘Lily Allen: Rags to Riches’ – which followed her career move from music to fashion and the opening of her vintage boutique store Lucy In Disguise – she said: “I want to get married and have kids and make sandwiches cutting the crusts off.”
However, despite the pretty brunette looking forward to wedded bliss she is not keen on the idea of getting older, with her 26th birthday coming up next Monday (02.05.11).
Shortly before boasting about her baking skills she tweeted: “I’ll be 26 in 5 days. Wrong side of 25.”
Lily Allen has got engaged. The ‘Who’d Have Known’ singer is overjoyed after saying yes to her boyfriend Sam Cooper after he proposed to her on a beach in Bali on Christmas Day (25.12.10). The 32-year-old building firm boss got down on one knee at sunset on the balcony of their £800-a-night suite at the Amankila cliff-side resort, which overlooks the Indian Ocean. Following the proposal the couple celebrated in the hotel bar, drinking champagne and cocktails with other guests. One onlooker told our source: ‘Lily was telling everyone that she and Sam had just got engaged ‘ they could not keep the smiles off their faces. It couldn’t have been more romantic. The resort is just so peaceful and picturesque.’ The engagement means 2010 ends on a happier note for the couple, who lost their baby in November when Lily was six months pregnant. The 25-year-old pop star has been dating Sam since July 2009 and has previously spoken of how happy she is with him. She said: “Sam treats me differently. He’s told me he’ll look after me forever. That’s what I’ve always wanted – someone to look after me. “We’ve never had one argument and there’s nothing about him that annoys me.”
