Let Them Eat Cake

In the small village of Breitnau in the black forest of Germany is the Goethehaus Hofjut Sternen.
This small hotel was Marie-Antoinette's (daughter of Empress Maria-Theresia) last lodging in Austria (the area is now a part of Germany) in 1770 while on her journey to France to marry king Louis 16th.
And we all know how that journey ended.
Good ol' Marie A is infamous for a certain piece of advice.
Which I did follow, mind you.
While in Breitnau I ate cake.
Authentic black forest cake, eaten while in the Black Forest.

Breitnau, the Black Forest and Breisach, Germany pictures are up in the galleries.
