It’s understandable that most of the attention focused on Graham Herterich – aka The Cupcake Bloke – should concentrate on his prodigious, style-defining skills as a baker. Ireland has never known a baker who can take the concept of domestic baking – the tea brack; the Mikado biscuit – and render it as fine art. But focusing on his bakery products threatens to overlook another important fact about Mr Herterich, one which goes a long way to explain his success: he is one of the best communicators of his era. In another life, Graham Herterich might have been a broadcaster, a new Eamonn Andrews, a man whose mellifluous tones express a hungry, inquisitive, yet self-effacing public persona. Put him in front of an audience – a clatter of kids who want to decorate cupcakes; a theatre full of thirty-somethings at a music festival – and Mr Herterich educates and enchants his audience, and casts a spell on them. He casts a spell on all of us fortunate enough to enjoy his work.
