Church of St. Mary, Mother of God
This is a replica of the front of my architectural-jewel-of-a-church, St. Mary, Mother of God, executed in sugarpaste. It was the prime feature of the back of the RCIA cake. The original church has beautiful dormer windows on either side. It was built in 1900 and boasts magnificent Tiffany stained glass windows. Much to Antonia's delight, the main window is a representation of St. Cecilia. Perhaps when time allows, I will complete the back of the church and paint in the windows on my sugar replica.
