With the royal wedding now only a day away, many details concerning the occasion are being kept firmly under wraps.
However, the royal family has granted the public a sneak peek of the wedding cake that’s being made to celebrate the union of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Claire Ptak, owner of Violet Bakery in east London, has been working on the spring-inspired creation in the kitchens of Buckingham Palace over the past five days.
Ms Ptak has been assisted by a team of six other bakers, including Violet Bakery head baker Izaak Adams, as she’s attentively created the three-part layered cake.
Ms Ptak, who also works as a food stylist and writer, is said to focus on “high-quality, seasonal and organic ingredients in her cakes — a vision shared by both Prince Harry and Ms Markle”.
“I can’t tell you how delighted I am to be chosen to make Prince Harry and Ms Markle’s wedding cake,” she said in a statement released by Kensington Palace.
From children as bridesmaids to the drama over who will walk Meghan Markle down the aisle, Saturday’s Royal wedding promises to be like no other.
