When Marie Antoinette uttered the phrase “Let Them Eat Cake” over 200 years ago, little did she know her immortal words would help feed thousands of hungry people across the pond in the American City of Lights.
On March 8, 2009, the Royal Tea Society is hosting “Let Them Eat Cake” an afternoon tea event from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., Lakeside in Desert Shores.
The atmosphere will resemble dining on the River Seine and the menu will feature French favorites such as Salade Nicoise on Baguettes, Ham and Brie with Pears on Croissants, Herbes de Provence Chevré on Endive, and Bleu Cheese Profiteroles du Boef.
Over 20 cakes and pastries from Las Vegas’s famous and favorite bakeries will be served, including a Marie Antoinette cake by Freed’s Bakery which was featured on Cooking with Rachel Ray and voted 2007 Best of Weddings by The Knot, Layers Bakery voted #1 Bakery by readers of the Las Vegas Review Journal, a Princess Cake from Leopold’s Bakery, Chocolate Swan a couture bakery in Mandalay Bay, and Simple Elegance in Cake Design.
Please RSVP by February 28, 2009.
Proceeds from the event will benefit Three Square– “together we serve hope”.
