Downton Abbey’s Dowager Countess is a regal sort of lady. Played by Maggie Smith, Violet Crawley is sharp-tongued and delightful. Cake artist Karen Portaleo created an amazingly lifelike cake based on the character for Georgia Public Broadcasting’s launch party at the Fox Theater on December 4th. I can’t believe all the details and the texture and color of the skin – she looks so real!
