Two tier Venetian Extravaganza Cake. This cake features four pastillage masks, with feathers and beads and a replica Rialto bridge, also made from Pastillage. The commissioning family are having a lovely time in their gondolas. Each tier has been "painted" with royal icing and edible powders to recreate the plastered exteriors of the Venetian buildings. The Lion of St Mark (also the birthday boy's name) is featured on the front of the cake.
Roman Holiday (1953). Everyone loves a bad girl. Princess Ann (Audrey Hepburn) goes 1950s rogue when she smashes a guitar over an unsuspecting gentleman's head in a soiree scuffle. Luckily Joe Bradley (Gregory Peck) knows how to keep a royal secret.
