Diamond solitaire-topped bakery treat to be raffled off for charity.

Jewellery retailer Clive Ranger has created what it believes is the most expensive Welsh cake ever made.

The retailer has decorated a gigantic Welsh cake, baked by local start-up business Mary Margaret Mix, with cubic zirconia and a Welsh gold and diamond solitaire worth £6,250.


The cake is being raffled off at the chain’s store in Cardiff High Street to raise money for charity Marie Curie Cancer Care. The winner will be announced on Thursday, St Davids Day, at an evening drinks reception at the store.

Clive Ranger managing director Richard Slack said: “We wanted to do something special for St David’s Day and so decided to put our own unique twist on this tasty traditional food. This beautiful solitaire ring is set with a .71 carat certificated diamond and made from pure 18ct Welsh gold taken from the Gwynfynydd Mine in Dolgellau and would make a stunning gift or engagement ring.

“We’ll be displaying the one-off Welsh cake in our window in the week running up to St David’s Day for people to come and take a look at what we believe to be a world first. We’re confident that the giveaway will be a great success and that we’ll be able to make a significant donation to Marie Curie Cancer Care.”
