Royal Duchy Cake Creation Raises £500 For The Falmouth RNLI

An extraordinary Christmas cake created by head chef John Mijatovic has raised £500 for the Falmouth RNLI.

The culinary masterpiece featured the Royal Duchy Hotel where John has worked for the last ten years, Falmouth seafront, Pendennis Castle and, in the sea beyond Castle beach, the Falmouth RNLI lifeboat.

Hotel guests and visitors were able to view all the carefully contracted detail through a specially-constructed dome. They were also invited to buy raffle tickets to win a free dinner for two in the hotel restaurant along with Brend Hotel wine and make their own donations to the local RNLI.

“We’re absolutely delighted with the proceeds from both hotel guests and the generosity of the Brend Group and of course all John’s hard work and the Royal Duchy team’s generosity,” said Sylvia Batten, Secretary of the local RNLI Ladies Guild. “The cake was fantastic!”
