CELEBRITY SOUL SINGER HEATHER SMALL AND DAVID CAKES
UNITE TO HELP RAISE FUNDS FOR CANCER CHARITY
On Wednesday 9th December 2009 David Cakes unveiled his latest masterpiece to a select group of VIP visitors at Chester Cathedral. The six feet tall, larger than life, sugar sculpture of M-People star Heather Small was on display to a lucky group of guests who attended the Macmillan Cancer Support carol concert hosted by Smooth Radio presenter Steve Collins. Heather Small was delighted with the work of art and autographed her “own arm” whilst guests chatted with Heather and David about the creation.
David has been a strong supporter of Macmillan for over 25 years and has become more involved with the charity since his dad Roy was diagnosed with, and sadly died of, cancer in 2002. In addition to providing a cake for the annual Christmas raffle, David decided to do something completely different this year and created his greatest challenge to date. The sugar sculpture of Heather was completed in just 12 days and he was working just from a single photograph, having never previously met the star. The sculpture will be on display in the David Cakes of Distinction shop in Crosby for the foreseeable future whilst plans are finalised for promoting its prominence in order to raise money for Macmillan. The larger than life sculpture is believed to a world first to be created in sugar paste. Whilst many stars are immortalised in wax, Heather Small is now immortalised in sugar (although it would be perfectly possible to eat her!)
