Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Announce Details Of Royal Wedding Cake Maker

Markle have asked Claire to create a lemon elderflower cake that will incorporate the bright flavours of spring. The palace added that it will be covered with buttercream and decorated with fresh flowers.

The baker used to worked as a pastry chef for renowned chef Alice Waters at Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California.

Perhaps! Prince William also had a chocolate biscuit cake, which is reportedly a favorite of the queen's.

Meghan Markle previously interviewed Claire Ptak for her former lifestyle website The Tig.

Prince Harry and Meghan Marklehave chosen Claire Ptak as the pastry chefwho will bake their wedding cake. That's pretty non-traditional for a wedding, never mind a royal wedding, where it's usually fruit cake adorned with white icing.

Violet Bakery is owned by Claire Ptak, who describes herself as a stylist, cook and author on her official Twitter account, and regularly shares images of her attractive creations via her Instagram account. According to another Kensington tweet, "Claire Ptak, who was raised in California, focuses on using seasonal and organic ingredients in her cakes".

Why did Meghan and Harry choose it?

Based on Violet Bakery's Instagram, Ptak has a lot of experience with making special occasion cakes, many including real flowers just like the ones described for the royal wedding dessert. She set up Violet Bakery in 2010.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle said that they are looking forward to sharing the cake with their guests at their wedding. "Knowing that they really share the same values as I do about food provenance, sustainability, seasonality, and most importantly flavour, makes this the most exciting event to be a part of".

In a post shared last April, Ptak talked about her love of wedding cakes.
