DID YOU KNOW...?
....that table decoration in the form of sculpture made from sugar paste and gum was an essential component of royal dining from medieval times until the 19th century. Such sculptures were made by confectioners, table deckers, and pastry cooks. They were pressed from moulds or sculpted by hand and were mostly purely ornamental and not intended to be eaten. The art reached its peak in Britain during the Regency period (1790-1830) when Antonin Carême created sculpted sugar temples, triumphal arches, pyramids and pagodas for the Prince Regent at Brighton.
The Prince of Wales’s table decker, Benjamin Zobel, a Hungarian-born confectioner, became famous for creating coloured sand pictures which were used to decorate the table and which supplemented the sugar sculptures to create what was known as the theatre of the table.
