Three-foot Rudolph cake supports festive fundraising at Rugby church

A UNIQUE 3ft cake sculpture created by one of the UK’s most famous cake artists has been donated by Rugby’s new furniture store to support festive fundraising at a Rugby church.

The team from Oak Furniture Land at Elliott’s Field donated the cake – depicting a crashed Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer tangled in Christmas lights – to St Andrews Church at the grand opening of its Elliott’s Field store.

Mayor Belinda Garcia and the new store manager presented the Christmassy confectionary to Revd Imogen Nay and church fundraisers to show support for the church’s valuable community work.

The cake was made over three days by Rose Dummer of Rosie Cake Diva, famous for her realistic life-size creations including a 6ft grenadier guard created for Armistice Day.

St Andrew’s fundraiser Amber Merrick-Potter said: “The Rudolph reindeer cake really was a wonderful gesture to support our Christmas fundraising and we would like to thank everyone at the new Oak Furniture Land store for their kind and generous donation.

“This year’s fundraising Carol Concert took place on Sunday December 10 and the cake took centre stage at the event. We fundraise to support the work of the church and local charities in the community.”

Mayor Belinda Garcia said: “The new Oak Furniture Land store is a welcome investment in terms of job creation and is a nice addition to the choice of shops for Rugby residents. I wish them every success for the future.”

The new store’s manager Akeel Rafiq said: “We are delighted that the Mayor of Rugby opened our new showroom. To celebrate the new store opening we have up to 50 per cent off selected items.”
