You can’t have your (most seriously over-the-top) cake and eat it

HRH Arfaq with his then girlfriend Camilla Al Fayed leaving Nobo London a few years ago

What a find! 
Just came across this website for the wonderful Cake Store: 

Arfaq designed the cake for Camilla Al Fayed's 21st birthday. It featured an elaborate sphinx, running water and sand flown in specially from the famous Egyptian deserts (no biggie). I'm surprised the cake never had more media coverage; it practically deserves its own museum! Needless to say, the party was a thumping success, with all of Camilla's glitzy pals enjoying a delicious slice of the Egyptian sun in rainy old England. The birthday girl was incredibly touched by her boyfriend's thoughtful efforts... I even half-expected the cake to contain a ring, watching that video!

Strange then, that it didn't work out between them; but I guess it's a tribute to the solid foundation of their relationship that they're still great friends today, even though Camilla is now a mother and married to someone else.

As the saying goes, you can't have your cake and eat it too…!
