What the Dickens? Sweet as Sugar

To celebrate the opening of their new Portsmouth store yesterday, Oak Furniture Land commissioned CakeBomb to create a cake of Charles Dickens. Portsmouth is the birthplace of Dickens. Portsmouth’s Mayor visited the opening of the new store and there was a photoshoot with artist Laura Miller of Sweet as Sugar Cakes who is responsible for this fabulous cake. Laura really rose to the challenge to create a colour representation of the Dickens’s statue  (by sculptor Martin Jennings) which sits in Guildhall Square in Portsmouth, and which was unveiled in February of this year to celebrate the 202nd year since Dickens’s birth. The cake was afterwards presented to Portsmouth Museum. We hope to show you pictures of the cake being cut later in the week.
Well done, Laura, it’s a masterpiece!
