A unique, artist designed wedding cake is to be auctioned
with all money raised going to ShelterBox
If you are getting married soon and would like an artwork as your centrepiece, this
could be the cake for you!Sculpted by James Eddy, artist in residence at Heligan
Gardens, it is being auctioned by Experience Wine of Truro on the 21st June –
The project came about as a collaboration between artist and local wine merchant to
celebrate the coming wedding season in Cornwall. James was keen to learn
traditional cake making techniques from his father, a master baker and patisser,
combining these skills with his own artistic vision. The result is a fantastically rich fruit
cake, sculpted and iced to perfection that is also a work of art, full of symbolism and
“This a wonderful opportunity for a couple wanting a unique and beautiful cake that
will not only look and taste amazing, but will be helping a great local charity” says
Nigel Ede of Experience Wine.
The cake is currently part of a window display at Experience Wine and will be
auctioned by a ‘sealed bid’. If you would like to take this wonderful cake home, please
write the amount you wish to bid and your name and contact details in a sealed
envelope. Please send to: Experience Wine, Wedding Cake Bid, Toad Hall, 18 Old
Bridge Street, Truro, TR1 2AH. The envelopes will be opened on the 21st June, we
will contact the winner the same day.

All funds raised going to ShelterBox

(two becomes one...)
For Art in the City, I decided to go on a journey and discover how to make a sculpture that was a CAKE!
My Father was a baker and patisser, who with my Mother made beautiful sweets for Christmas and many Wedding cakes...
As I grew up with all that cake, marzipan and icing, I thought as a sculptor I’d try and make a sculpture that was a ‘CAKE’.
With Mum & Dad’s help, I thought it was an opportunity to learn their skills, so that they wouldn’t fade away. Passed to another generation...
With Wine Experience I designed the sculpture to coincide with the current wedding, wine and Art in the City. A celebration of past, present and future. Of passion for love, life and a life time of skill and hard work... The design of the CAKE was meant to be predominantly a sculpture in an ambiguous textural style..
A story of note is that whilst working at Treliske Hospital Dad made a huge cake depicting a map of Cornwall, for the visit of Margret Thatcher. But lets stick to cakes and not go into politics!!!
