The royal couple, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have reportedly opted for a lemon and elder flower creation with buttercream icing wedding cake for their wedding on Saturday.
The fancy cake for the wedding of Harry, Queen Elizabeth’s grandson, and US actress Markle has actually taken six bakers five days to prepare and is sure to break tradition.
According to the cake designer Claire Ptak;
“When I was first asked to present an idea for the cake I brought a selection of flavours and designs and they made a decision together as couple,”
“You have a really lovely kind of thing happening when you take a bite, which is to get all of those flavours and sensations that are perfectly balanced.”
Ptak is originally from California and worked at Chez Panisse in Berkeley under chef Alice Waters before moving to London. She started her own business cooking at home and selling cakes on a stall in east London’s Broadway Market
It is obviously such an honour to be asked to do this because for me I have been baking since I was a little kid and this is my dream
