Our forthcoming shoot in November features a banquet scene in the Great Hall, where the table is to be set with authentic Tudor fayre, including Anne Boleyn's favourites - Maids of Honour cakes. So named, as legend has it, by Henry VIII, when he caught Anne eating them in the kitchen with the parlour maids.
The cakes for our production will be freshly baked from the historical recipe by two of our catering team, Jack and Sue Richards, seen here having had a successfully yummy rehearsal. Doubtless, on the day, after the shoot, the cakes won't go to waste with certain members of the crew (no names mentioned!) eager to tuck in!
