Once a couple becomes engaged, a newfound excitement comes along with the news. They have a bright future ahead, and they anxiously await the day when they become united as one. In all the excitement, there are many details to iron out.
As May 19th rapidly approaches, Prince Harry and his stunning bride-to-be, Meghan Markle, check off some significant tasks off their pre-wedding to-do list. The world has been sitting on the edge of its seat waiting to hear every last detail of the plans. As of late, several things have been announced, and it makes us even more thrilled for their big day!
Like most couples, deciding the flavor and type of wedding cake is a well thought out process. The cake symbolizes so much, and it’s crucial that the flavor and design pair well with the aesthetic of the day.
Per tradition, the royal family members stick with an English fruitcake for their wedding cake. The staggering news recently broke that Harry and Meghan are deciding to forego this and start a tradition of their own. Instead of the English fruitcake, they’ve opted for an organic lemon elderflower cake. If this doesn’t sound as dreamy as the day itself, I don’t know what does!
Along with the flavor, they’ve also selected a baker to make the glorious dessert. Claire Ptak is a pastry chef and owner of the London bakery called Violet Cakes. This is an honor of a lifetime and will be one significant highlight of her pastry career.
Ptak has gained a great deal of notoriety for her perfectly crafted confections and will, undoubtedly, make one of the most spectacular cakes for the couple’s big day. According to Twitter, the cake will incorporate bright flavors of spring and will be covered with buttercream and decorated with fresh flowers.
This cake will be one that folks talk about for years to come, I’m just sure of it. As for Ptak, this magnificent honor will launch her career even further. I think it’s safe to say that, after this, she’ll be a whole lot busier in the future!
