Whoever at The City Reliquary saved a display wedding cake from La Villita Bakery for posterity, was pretty clever. One can now see a little piece of local bakery history, get a satisfying slice of nostalgia, and be up close and personal with one of the strange (lost) wonders of our neighborhood’s recent past—the revolving styrofoam and cream wedding cake. With it’s own unique patina it sits on a museum display counter like rosy queen majesty. An article published in the WG, about the Sosa family, exactly one year ago today, accompanies the exhibit.
The City Reliquary is a mini-museum located on Metropolitan Ave, devoted to the display of New York City artifacts, and “connects visitors to both the past and present of New York.”
