Did you know about the origins of the Baddeley Cake? When the 18th century actor Robert Baddeley collapsed and died in his dressing room at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, his will was found to specify that a sum of £100 was to be invested in order to provide money for the baking of a cake every Twelfth Night to feed ‘Her Majesty’s Company of Comedians’.
Punch was later added to the menu which, since the theatre’s tercentenary in 1963, has been distributed from a silver punchbowl which the then company of My Fair Lady had presented to the theatre. Actors are expected to attend the cutting of the cake in their costumes. The tradition has continued since 1795, apart from a break during both World Wars.
