LADY GODIVA - WOMEN WHO CHANGED THE WORLD COLL

Hello to everybody !
This is my contribution to this Collaboration that talk about the most famous women who changed the world thank to their brave , strength and goodness.
I chose the scandalous and mad woman Lady Godiva after reading her story and I felt in love with her.
She was an 11th century gentlewoman married to the powerful yet insensitive Earl of Mercia and Lord of Coventry, Leofric. Legend has it that the citizens of Coventry were highly depressed and disheartened due to heavy taxes imposed by the cruel Leofric. Despite repeated requests by Lady Godiva, he refused, but agreed to lessen the burden provided she rode through the market town naked on horseback. Left with no alternative and determined to help her townspeople, she completed the challenge, following which the taxes were abolished leaving aside those on horses.

ABOUT THE CAKE
I wanted to represent her pride and suffering at the same time because I thought that what she was doing was really hard to face up for that times.
The layer where the horse is standing turn. it is a dummy and placed over a small electric turning table that is inside the cake. In short the cake is all around it.

All around the cake I attached a strip of sugar paste where I painted the outline of a typical landscape, first with the airbrush then using the brush.

Kisses
