    Thanks for the vote/comments.

This was a last-minute rush job. I couldn't find any better cakes. Although now I understand I should have used "brioche".

It alludes to the words attributed to Marie-Antoinnete when she found out that the common Parisians were starving due to there being no bread.

She suggested they eat cake.

It was used as an example of how the sophisticates of the sun-king simply had no understanding of the day-to-day reality of the people.

And it's suggested this attitude was one of the triggers for The Terrors in France.

The sign "Rien de pain" is meant to mean that there's absolutely no bread in the shop.

There.

    Good idea, but a more elaborate desert would have had a more sophisticated look.
