16ft St Patrick's Cake at the Midland Hotel

Slattery's goes green with vast patisserie adornment

Published on March 16th 2010.


16ft St Patrick's Cake at the Midland Hotel

On Monday a cake stole the show at the Midland. A five-tiered, sixteen-feet, fully iced cake dotted with clover leaves stood proudly at the lobby surrounded by equally proud Irish-folk. The cake was made by Slattery's (Whitefield) in honour of the Manchester St Patrick's Society's 75th anniversary. Confidential was shown how copies of the celebrated Irish artist Paul Henry's paintings had been incorporated in the design in marzipan frames. There are also plaques inscribed with 'C'ead Mile Failte' (Gaelic for a hundred thousand welcomes), and bodhráns in amongst the sponsors' logos. Sadly, only the top tier is actual cake, which will be served to guests at the annual St Patrick's Day dinner party.

Only the top tier is cake? Isn't that a bit of a half baked idea?
