A Cake for HRH Prince Charles
Article - 30 November 2018


We felt deeply honoured to be commissioned by The Prince’s Countryside Fund to make a special cake to celebrate His Royal Highness’s 70th Birthday, which was presented to him at Ascot Racecourse on Friday 23rd November.

We were asked to include features into the cake that reflected Prince Charles’s love of the countryside and everything he does to support it, through his charity The Prince’s Countryside Fund. Our traditional fruit cake was requested – Prince Charles’s absolute favourite. Fiona and her team got to work designing and decorating the two-tier cake with delicate sugar craft shapes including rare breed animals, hens, a little basket with eggs, and things that reflect the Prince’s country pursuits – hedge laying, dry stone walling, water colour painting, gardening, his racing colours, salmon fishing and polo. The cake was also painted beautifully with meadow flowers and wild grasses.


Fiona was invited to present the cake to Prince Charles on his birthday which he spent at the Prince’s Countryside Fund Raceday. It was an honour and a pleasure to be part of such a wonderful celebration!
