What food represents King Lear What food represents Cordelia What food represents the story of King Lear?

King Lear is represented by a pineapple which has been cut in four pieces and left out in the rain overnight, while Cordelia is represented by a pint of cream that has been mailed back and forth across the English Channel. The story of King Lear is represented by a chocolate sheet cake with buttercream frosting and decorated with a bottle of dragees, a number of parasol toothpicks, and, hidden with the cake, a small chunk of urbanite.
