Can we call an end to the celebration of twee? And with it, all the endless trappings of the 1950s-housewife look, which is actually deeply unflattering to most figures; the Betty Draper style (see January Jones as Mad Men's Betty), the glorification of baking, the endless cupcakes, cake stands, bunting, and the need to have a wardrobe of aprons.

Come on people, it's the 21st Century. Did we not fight long and hard to not have the lives of our grandmothers? Why the rose-tinted nostalgia for this sort of thing? All our favourite foodies - Rachel, Roz, Rosanna - resist the urge to get all Betty Crocker. The rest of us should follow suit.
