Let them eat cake! Marie-inspired cake decadence (and link roundup)

Of course, our queen never uttered such an atrocity. The quote, “Qu’ils mangent de la brioche” was likely said by Marie Therese, the wife of Louis XIV, 100 years before her birth (your blog mistress has made something of a hobby correcting people of that fact on the Twitter, so watch out). But that doesn’t mean that we cannot enjoy the sweets our sweet queen has accidentally inspired. Each cake below features the requisite Marie inspired elements: feathers, flowers, exquisite detail and overall, general baked decadence (and a link that leads you to more!)

Arrange for a woman in a gorgeous gown near your sweets table to distract male friends and keep more sweets for yourself.

This cake is topped with a crown with glitter and feathers, not to mention Marie's trademark monogram.

Your blog mistress loves the addition of cupcake wrappers and colored parchment.

4. And finally,  touch of history with notes on the type of cake Marie would have likely eaten (and a menu from her beloved Trianon!). To read more click The Old Foodie.

If you know of any other exquisite Marie-inspired cakes, please post the links in the comments. I’d love to see them.
