Cadbury recreates Black Peppa’s Drag Race UK headdress

Birmingham-based and Caribbean-born drag performer, Black Peppa showcased the best of Birmingham in the first episode of Drag Race UK season four as she won the first challenge, walking the runway in a purple gown and a chocolate-inspired headdress created by Paulette Cherry for the category Ru Are You.

The headdress and purple-coloured dress were not only a showcase of Black Peppa’s signature drag but also a nod to Cadbury’s Birmingham roots, with the company beginning when John Cadbury opened a grocer’s shop at 93 Bull Street, Birmingham, in 1824.

Following Black Peppa’s win, Cadbury put their Bournville chocolatiers to work as they re-created the iconic chocolate headdress, this time using real chocolate as their materials. Celebrating two Birmingham names in one, Cadbury proudly declared that they were team Black Peppa as they showed off their chocolatey creation.
