The Cake Dance Suite is a light-hearted set of four Miniatures. Each "slice" contains an original dance melody and then play about with the tunes from the country concerned- straight or adapted. For example, Eclair has a French carol, a whiff of the Marseillaise and hints of Frere Jacques shared among the players.
