The Queen of Cakes

Today in Greenwich Market, we bought raffle tickets from the lovely Natasha Orubie from www.nocakesrbetter.com (that’s her on the left of the first photo, with my partner and me), who had make this incredible edible head of Her Maj to raise money for Cancer Research. We only went and won the thing! There is no way that we will be able to do it justice, so we’d like to find a deserving home for the cake.

We’d be happy to consider generous offers of a donation to Cancer Research to help Natasha’s chosen cause further, or possibly give the cake away if there is a nursing home or shelter who would treat her with the reverence she deserves!

Whoever gives Liz a home would need to collect her from us in SE10 as she weighs a ton and we don’t have a car. She is currently in residence in a sturdy cardboard box.

As you can see from the photos, this is an absolute work of art – we are in awe (and a little bit scared!). The entire cake is edible – the base is fruit cake and the head is rice crispie cake covered with chocolate, although there is a cake stand supporting her through the centre and some wires in the tiara.

Please get in touch if you’d like the opportunity for an “off-with-her-head” moment at your Jubilee street party!
