The Abandoned Theatre Cake at Cake Opera Co

The Abandoned Theatre Cake

Inspired by a time when experiencing an opera was not only captivating by the drama which played out on stage but also the drama that bled off the stage into the space surrounding its audience.

Today, many of these enchanting theatres have fallen into despair. Their tattered curtains, gilded marquis and almost forgotten faded backdrops manage to evoke a mesmerizing fascination with the haunting beauty of ornamental decay.

Cake Artist, Alexandria Pellegrino, celebrated for her imaginative representations of old world beauty through cake, will host a series of three day classes. Fellow cake designers will learn how to construct this unique design - The Abandoned Theatre Cake.
