I love haute couture inspired cakes and cookies; what better time period than the 18th century Versailles. During Marie Antoinette’s regime fashion was a means
to control the king and queen’s court, “to keep the potentially dangerous aristocracy in-check.”
In the eighteenth century, the court of Versailles, became the dictating fashion and the best representative of the aristocracy.
Such was the influence that even the social classes that had remained untouched by the changes in dress,
were affected, a phenomenon exacerbated by the publication of fashion magazines, the most important being the “Galerie des modes” published in Paris from 1770.
This tutorial is inspired by both Marie Antoinette and the 18th century, the birth of couture fashion.
