"Health, Wealth And Subtleties" (detail) by Kathryn Parsons, sugar modelling pastes

These sugar shoes were created to tell something of the story of Anne Cecil - nine years old at the time of the planned visit by Queen Elizabeth 1. The shoes were created using a variety of sugar modelling pastes, including pastillage made to a recipe unchanged since Tudor times… except that Kathryn didn't have to grind her own sugar!
