Eaton Bray cake designer mingles with stars
Posted on December 11, 2009
Eaton Bray cake designer Michelle Shulman found herself mingling with the stars after she donated one of her creations for a glitzy showbiz bash.
Michelle, 31, had dreamed of designing a cake for someone famous.
So when one of her friends told her that Take That were hosting a charity night to launch their new PlayStation Singstar game, she contacted the party organisers.
The mum, who runs her own business, Cakes By Shelly, was told that they would be delighted to receive one of her creations, and she was also invited to the VIP event, at The Tabernacle, in London.
The award-winning cake designer said: "All these famous faces were there, including people like Kate Moss, Take That, James Corden and Rachel Stevens. It was all very overwhelming."
The evening was held in aid of Body and Soul, a charity which supports people in the UK affected by HIV.
During the event, stars took to the stage to perform Take That hits.
At one point, Michelle saw Kate Moss jump onto the dance floor for the conga, and she also saw James Corden sing a Take That hit.
Michelle said:" The cake did get eaten because it was Kate Moss's assistant's birthday, so they put candles on it and cut it up."
And aside from the excitement of the party, Michelle was delighted to receive awards for three cakes which she entered in separate categories at the Cake International Competition, at the NEC in Birmingham.
She received bronze in the 'sculptured novelty' section and certificates of merit in both the 'wedding cake, two or more tiers' category, and for the 'decoration, celebration cake' category.
She has also passed on some of her expertise to her nine-year-old daughter, Fiona, who also entered the competition.
The youngster won a certificate of merit in the junior Christmas cake category.
Michelle said: "I was over the moon about that, and far more chuffed than I was about my own successes."
