Original moulds from Ivan's personal collection were shown to the audience along with explanations as to how they were used and what food types would have been moulded within.
One highlight of the evening was the display of specially made deserts all of which were spectacular not only in design but in behaviour!
From jelly to cheese and biscuit to flummery and even ice cream moulds - the array and style of food preparation in the past leaves has left just a shadow of influence on modern foods.
|It is a cameo brooch? No, it's a jelly/flummery! Made in an original 18th century mould|
|Another 18th century flummery|
|The wobble on this steeple flummery was astounding! How could a footman presenting this to table keep a straight face?|
|Beautifully handcarved sugar walnut moulds - put the 2 halves together and hide inside some sweets or a motto!|
|Amazingly detailed moulds from Ivan's collection|
