Mindy Sue Meyers just finished a new piece where she extravagantly beaded a sponge. She writes:
This little sponge cake is “Cake Antoinette” I titled it after Marie Antoinette, as she was my inspiration for this piece specifically. I like to think of adornment and extravagance when making my pieces. Marie Antoinette was quite extravagant and I think if this little cake was real, perhaps it would have graced one of her china cake plates in her parlor. Perhaps.
