A Leighton Buzzard wedding cake designer has received a letter from Kensington Palace after creating a show cake celebrating the forthcoming first birthday of Prince George.
Cakes by Shelly of North Street, Leighton Buzzard created the cake entitled ‘A present for the Prince’, as part of a display at this year’s Ideal Home Show that took place at Earls Court on 14-30 March 2014. Cakes by Shelly’s owner Shelly Shulman, was so pleased with the bespoke creation and forwarded on photographs to the palace for TRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Since sending the pictures, Shelly has received a letter from Kensington Palace on behalf of the Duke and Duchess. Dated 26 March, the letter reads:
“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have asked me to thank you for your letter of 17th March in which you showed Their Royal Highnesses the brilliant cake you have made for the Ideal Home Show.
I must say, your cake looks extraordinary and the attention to detail is most impressive – please do accept my huge congratulations! The Duke and Duchess were equally impressed and would have me pass on their warmest thanks and very best wishes.”
The cake along with a copy of the letter are now proudly on display in the window of Cakes by Shelly.
