A Norwich baker crafted a royal-themed batch of cakes to celebrate the safe arrival of the Princess of Cambridge - and they sold out within 20 minutes.
Jodie Colman, 34, set up new sugar craft business It’s All Cake Believe from her home in the Riverside area of Norwich.
She specialises in cupcakes and cake decorating, for small orders and craft fairs, and over the weekend she made special baby girl cupcakes to celebrate the birth of the royal baby.
“The cupcakes all sold out at the Marina Centre craft fair in Great Yarmouth,” said Ms Colman. “I had to make another whole new batch for the Monday bank holiday, the last day of the event.”
The cupcakes were topped with a sugar-design shaped as a sleeping baby, along with a crown by her head under a pink blanket with hearts.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have named their daughter Charlotte – a decision which will be seen as a tribute to the Prince of Wales.
They have also recognised the Queen and the Duke’s mother Diana, Princess of Wales, as their daughter’s full name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.
The choice is a gesture sure to have pleased the heir to the throne, who made no secret of the fact he wanted his second grandchild to be a girl.
The Princess, who was born on Saturday at 8.34am, weighing 8lbs 3oz, is fourth in line to the throne and the Queen’s fifth great-grandchild.
