WMSC 2024 Cake: Persian Pattern

The Persian pattern was chosen this year to reflect the theme of 'Global Morris'. This pattern was designed by John Henry Dearle, alongside praise from Morris himself.

In 1882, Morris wrote: “To us pattern designers, Persia has become a holy land, for there in the process of time our art was perfected, and thence above all places it spread to cover for a while the world, east and west.”

The cake was a Ukrainian honey cake with sour cream filling, the vines and patterns rendered in royal icing.
