What Baking Can Do | Waitress Musical West End

WHAT BAKING CAN DO | Waitress Musical – Performed By Carolyn Maitland

With the fantastic news that the American actress Katharine McPhee is set to star as Jenna Hunterson in the premiere of Waitress at the Adelphi Theatre, I give you my Cover of ‘What Baking Can Do’ from WAITRESS, created for the #SongsChosenByYou Concert performed on Saturday 28th October 2017, in the Crazy Coqs, Live at Zedel, London.

‘What Baking Can Do’ is a song written for the show ‘Waitress’ by Sara Bareilles who also wrote ‘When He Sees Me’, Pomatter Pie, You Will Still Be Mine and Club Knocked Up.

Waitress is a musical celebrating the joys of motherhood and friendship. It tells the story of Jenna, a waitress at a local diner and pie-maker extraordinaire, as she copes with a pregnancy by an abusive husband and dreams of a new life with the new doctor in town as well as a local pie baking contest.

In this video I sing What baking can do live from my concert. “What Baking Can Do” is a song with a deep meaning disguised by an upbeat tempo. It tells the story of how Jenna finds an escape in baking, which she learned from her mother who also was trapped in a loveless marriage.

Make it work
Make it easy
Make it clever, craft it into pieces
Make it sweet
Crimp the edges
We’ll make it sour and serve with lemon wedges
Even doubt
Can be delicious
And it washes off of all the dirty dishes
When it’s done
I can smile
It’s on someone else’s plate for a while

What baking can do

I’ll place it on display
And then I’ll slice and serve my worries away

I can fix this
I can twist it into sugar, butter covered pieces
Never mind what’s underneath it
I have done it before
I’ll bake me a door to help me get through
I learned that from you
Mama, it’s amazing what baking can do

Waitress west end

Make it up
And surprise them
Tell them all my secrets but disguise them
So they dance on the tongues
Of the very people that they’re secrets from
Make it soon
Make it better
Though, better never lasts forever
I’ll make it small so it fits

Even this
Even now
Even as the walls come tumbling down
Even as I can’t stop remembering how
Every door we ever made, we never once walked out
Something I never got the chance to ask her about

So with flour on my hands
I’ll show them all how
Goddamn happy I am
Sugar, butter, flour
Don’t let me down
Let’s see the next amazing thing baking does now
