The Royal Cornwall Museum have been given the great honour of displaying an amazing Poldark inspired cake


This article was found at West Briton The show returned last Sunday and ahead of the well loved drama, national retailers Oak Furniture Land commissioned Christine Jensen, owner of the Peboryon Cake Design Studio in Penzance to create a Poldark cake. The reason being, it was the opening celebration of the first store in Cornwall at West Truro Retail Park. The masterpiece was recently donated to the Royal Cornwall Museum in Truro so they could share it with those visiting their brand new Poldark Trail Exhibition. Christine owns the Design Studio with her husband Phil and they are well renowned for their amazing cake art all over the UK.
Christine said: "The cake is properly Cornish. We had to include Cornwall's amazing coastline, it's so much a part of the Poldark story. The main feature though, are the next three volumes of Winston Graham's 12 Poldark books which we believe will be told in the upcoming Season 2 of the Poldark TV series.  "Truro is such a key location in the Poldark story, and we're so glad that the Royal Cornwall Museum, Truro, is featuring Graham's works."

About the cake:

  • The books are made up of a lemon and elderflower sponge
  • Ross Poldark's iconic tricorn hat has been crafted using rice crispy treats
  • The delicate Cornish lace handkerchief is made of sugar paste
Don't miss out! The museum is opening its new trail on September 5th, it's curated by Dr Hannah Grieg, a historian, author and consultant on the series. Deborah Hinton, trustee at the Royal Cornwall Museum, added: "A tribute cake is a wonderful gesture to highlight our Poldark Trail Exhibition and the work that we do at the museum, which has a unique connection with Winston Graham."
