Taste of Christ­mas

Egham News - - COMMUNITY -

YOUR typ­i­cal baked treat this Christ­mas will prob­a­bly con­sist of fruit cake but baker Laura Miller, who runs the Sweet As Sugar shop, is try­ing some­thing al­to­gether more am­bi­tious.

Laura, from Byfleet, has well and truly put the ic­ing on the cake by cre­at­ing a mag­i­cal ex­tra de­pict­ing Santa in his sleigh pulled by eight rein­deer.

The vir­tu­oso ef­fort is part of a Christ­mas col­lab­o­ra­tion to raise money for The Alzheimer's So­ci­ety.

Around 200 bak­ers across the world have been busy cre­at­ing an edi­ble sculp­ture to cre­ate a fes­tive vil­lage scene based on the make­be­lieve Frost­ing­ton.

Last year, Laura baked a busy scene from Dis­ney's smash-hit Frozen as part of Bake A Christ­mas Wish – to raise money for the MakeA-Wish Foun­da­tion.

Her grand ef­fort helped raise more than £8,000.

“We would like to push that fig­ure even higher this year,” said Laura.

“The vil­lage scene is made com­pletely of edi­ble cake sculp­tures and Santa's sleigh and the eight rein­deers was baked by me.”

The cake is on dis­play at Sweet As Sugar in Bagshot all this month.
