Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding cake revealed

Guests at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding in May are in for a treat, with the pair revealing details of their cake.

The royal couple have steered away from the traditional choice of fruit cake, and have instead opted for an organic lemon and elderflower masterpiece.

In a statement released overnight, Kensington Palace said the cake will “incorporate the bright flavors of spring” and will “be covered with buttercream and decorated with fresh flowers”.


Californian pastry chef and food writer Claire Ptak, owner of the Violet Bakery in east London, has been enlisted to bake it.

Bride-to-be Meghan has previously met and interviewed Ptak for her former lifestyle website The Tig.

In a statement following the announcement, Ptak said she was “delighted” to be be chosen to make Prince Harry and Ms. Markle’s wedding cake.

“Knowing that they really share the same values as I do about food provenance, sustainability, seasonality and most importantly flavor, makes this the most exciting event to be a part of.”
