MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry’s royal wedding cake will be designed by London-based bakery owner Claire Ptak who will create a lemon elderflower cake to be shared by guests at the May 19 wedding.
The cake will incorporate “bright flavours of spring” and will be covered in buttercream and fresh flowers, according to Kensington Palace.
Meghan and Harry haven chosen Claire Ptak, who is from California, to make the creation for their special day.
Ms Ptak started out on a stall in Broadway Market and is now going to design what is sure to be one of the most famous Royal wedding cakes in history.
The pastry chef opened Violet Cakes in Hackney in 2010, which specialises in using seasonal and organic ingredients in their cakes.
Ms Ptak was previously interviewed by Meghan, 36, for her lifestyle wbesite, The Tig, which was shut down after her relationship with Prince Harry was confirmed.
In a celebratory post on her Instagram, Ms Petak said the royal couple shared her values.
She posted: “Kinda excited to announce this one!! Violet has been chosen to make the wedding cake for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. @kensingtonroyal They both share so many of the same values regarding food provenance, sustainability, seasonality and of course, flavour! Xxx”
