Royal Wedding Fever

Unusual Flavours And Rustic Finish

Handsome Prince Harry and the beautiful Meghan Markel marry on the 19th of May 2018 and we couldn’t be more excited!

The country is in the grip of wedding fever

As bakers we were eagerly awaiting news of the cake and we weren’t disappointed. Harry & Meghan have chosen Claire Ptak who runs London based bakery Violet Cakes to create their special cake.

Shying away from the traditional fruit or classic sponges they have opted for a delicately flavoured Lemon & Elderflower sponge cake which will be rustically finished with thick buttercream and decorated with fresh flowers


This beautiful buttercream cake was created for Phoebe & Matt.

As soon as we heard about it we couldn’t wait to start baking and created our very own version for the shop and it was a real hit with our customers and brides to be, so much so that we have quite a few lemon & elderflower cakes booked in for future weddings.


Our gorgeous lemon & Elderflower cake

The rustic buttercream design is a far cry from the intricate royal icing masterpiece that I helped recreate to celebrate The Queen & Prince Phillips 70th Anniversary but we are sure it will be a real showstopper.

One of my most favourite wedding cakes is this stunning ruffle cake I created for a photoshoot
