A magnificent royal wedding cake for the wedding of Princess Louise to the Marquis of Lorne in 1871, made by Queen Victoria's chief confectioner at Windsor Castle.

The base was decorated with white satin, bearing coats of arms, the initials L.L. entwined with blue, wreaths of orange blossom, and small vases containing small flowers. Within an alcove above the base was fountain with doves drinking and around the miniature temple were four statues representing Agriculture, Fine Arts, Commerce, and Science. The upper part was crowned by a figure of a vestal virgin. All the figures and ornaments were, staggeringly, made of sugar. Date: 1871

The Marquis of Anglesey Featured Print

The Marquis of Anglesey

Henry Cyril Paget, 5th Marquess of Anglesey Bt, (16 June 1875 14 March 1905), styled Lord Paget until 1880 and Earl of Uxbridge between 1880 and 1898, and nicknamed "Toppy", British peer, notable during his short life for squandering his inheritance on a lavish social life and accumulating massive debts. Regarded as the "black sheep" of the family, he was dubbed "the dancing marquess" for his habit of performing "sinuous, sexy, snake-like dances". He converted the chapel at the family's country seat of Plas Newydd, Anglesey, into a 150-seat theatre, named the Gaiety Theatre. Here he took the lead role, opulently costumed, in productions ranging from pantomime and comedy to performances of Oscar Wilde's An Ideal Husband and Shakespeare's Henry V. For three years he took his company on tour around Britain and Europe. Date: 1904
