"Queen Elizabeth Ist"
Take a very large Dish with a broad brim, lay in it some Naples Bisket
in the Form of a Star, then put so much Sack into the Dish as you do
think the Biskets will drink up; then stick them full with thin little
pieces of preserved Orange, and green Citron Pill, and strew store of
French Comfits over them, of divers colours, then butter some Eggs, and
lay them here and there upon the Biskets, then fill up the hollow places
in the Dish, with several coloured Jellies, and round about the Brim
thereof lay Lawrel Leaves guilded with Leaf-Gold; lay them flaunting,
and between the Leaves several coloured Jellies.
