Queen Charlotte’s Ball was one of the highlights of the London season in the middle of the last century, as debs and their beaus danced and dallied.

And the wonderful display of tiered cakes on the buffet tables, with mountains of delicate tracery and sheaves of flowers, was one of the stars of the show.

Celia Hasan, who created many of these masterpieces of cake decoration, has worked in sugarcraft all her life.

She is one of the country’s experts in the art of cake decoration and has shared her expertise with generations of students and amateurs alike.

She will tell the story of her life and work at Stotfold Watermill on Friday night and she will also be recreating one of those ornate cake decorations of the 1950s.
