Royal Wedding Cake: Baker Tells On Its Taste

We can say for sure that when former American actress Meghan Markle marries Prince Harry, everything will look classy and simple - from the wedding dress to the cake.

‘Simple’ is a great word to describe the latter when comparing it to the lavish royal cakes we’ve seen before. The royal family shared a throwback photo of gorgeous creations that have been one of the biggest traditions that Meghan and Harry inevitably broke.

 Wedding cakes have been a tradition since Queen Victoria's day. Queen Victoria and Prince Albert’s cake had three tiers and weighed 300 pounds. There were even decorations including busts of the couple on the top tier. Since then designs have evolved but the significance of the wedding cake has remained the same. Wedding cakes made for a Royal couple are usually large enough to 2,000 people, with slices packaged up and sent to charities and organizations close to them as well as served up to the guests in attendance.

So, what would Harry and Meghan’s cake be like and how is it different from the ones that were baked before?

The modern creation will be made by American-born baker Claire Ptak of East London’s Violet Bakery. The flavor is quite unusual - lemons and elderflower, which will represent what Kensington Palace calls the “bright flavors of spring.”

Though Ptak is not allowed to say how the cake will look, she’s well-known for her talent to incorporate live flowers in the cakes’ décor. We know for sure that this royal cake needs to feed at least 600 guests.






Rumor has it there may also be a fruitcake to honor the traditions.


We just hope there won’t be a soggy bottom or a messy top!
