We wanted to show our appreciation to the people of Macclesfield by supporting a local cause in a different way. Our Macclesfield customers are important to us and the refurbished store carries an enhanced offering with all of our furniture ranges on display, which will give Macclesfield shoppers even more furniture choice.

The amazing cake sculpture was designed by the North West most famous cake artist, Rose Dummer of Rosie Cake Diva and CakeBomb. Rose is from Gatley, South Manchester and went to Manchester High School for girls is famous for her amazing life-size and realistic cake creations, including a 6ft grenadier guard created for Armistice Day.

Rose Dummer says: “For the Valentine’s Ball I wanted to create a statement piece that would bring some drama and romance to the Mayor’s Ball. It wasn’t an easy cake to make and it was even harder to transport! Hardly surprising as my sculpted Cupid is sitting on top of 7 tiers of rich fruit cake.”
