Last week, I posted a collection of Marie Antoinette-themed cakes I’d found on our grand Interweb, thinking that I’d provided for you, my dear reader, a well-curated selection. What I didn’t know, and needed Twitter friend Lily of Opulence to show me, is that the most incredible Marie Antoinette cakery was yet unknown to me. Your blog mistress is not prone to hyperbole so please indulge me.
Cake Opera Co. in Ontario Canada is the home of cake artist Alexandria Pellegrino and pastry chef Jessica Smith. Pellegrino fuses a background in fine arts and art history to sculpt cakes of stunning detail. Smith draws from her studies in history and culture, and her later studies in pastry to invent delicious, 18th century-inspired masterpieces. Both have studied at Le Cordon Bleu Ottawa.
Please, do yourself a favor and gape over Cake Opera Co.’s Web site (even the Web site is cool) where you’ll truly find the most precious cakes, cupcakes and macarons imagined. You will weep for the fact that there is no Cake Opera Co. in your fair city.
