LONG BEACH, CA - A famous Queen reportedly said: "Let them eat cake!" She must have heard about the Queen Mary's upcoming 80th Anniversary party and press conference, September 26. To celebrate, the Queen Mary has commissioned what may be the world's largest ship replica cake designed by TV celebrity baker and pastry chef, Jose Barajas. The 20 foot long cake can serve over 1000 guests. There's another good reason to celebrate the ship's 80 years of public life.
The spectacular cake will contain one special token - a replica Queen Mary souvenir pin. The fortunate guest - media and public alike - who is served this special slice of history will be awarded a luxury cruise on Cunard's flagship, Queen Mary 2. The winner will sail from Southampton to New York, with travel to be completed by December 2015.
WHAT: The Queen Mary, the world's most beloved ocean liner, celebrates 80 years of public life, Friday, Sept. 26. A public reception is planned - admission to the ship will be free - tours, parking and other amenities will be discounted.
Celebrity baker and pastry chef, Jose Barajas will present a spectacular replica of the ship - made as close to scale as flour and frosting will allow. The cake will be ceremonially cut by attending dignitaries and surviving passenger, Mrs. June Allen. She came to America as a WWII war bride and was recently featured on the CBS Sunday Morning Show. One fortunate guest may win a luxury Cunard cruise on the Queen Mary 2.
WHERE: Free admission to the ship continues through 7:00 PM. The 80th Anniversary Reception and Press Conference will begin at 4:00 PM in the Grand Salon.
