More details from the much-awaited wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle emerge.
Kensington Palace announced in a series of tweets about the details regarding the wedding cake planned by soon-to-be-married couple Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
According to Closer Weekly, the couple has chosen Claire Ptak as the pastry chef of their wedding cake. Ptak is the owner of London-based bakery Violet Cakes.
The tweet from the Palace further opened up about the kind of cake that the couple has asked Ptak to make.
It was disclosed that Harry and Markle want Ptak to create a 'lemon elderflower cake that will incorporate the bright flavors of spring,' which 'will be covered with buttercream and decorated with fresh flowers.'
Ptak is a veteran chef, who was actually raised in California, and she started her Violet Bakery as a simple stall on Broadway Market in 2010. She mostly used to bake at home back then, but eventually opened her premises in Hackney.
Ptak's unique style of using seasonal and organic ingredients might have impressed Markle, according to the online source.
Following the announcement, Ptak revealed just how excited she was to be selected by the royal couple for preparing their wedding cake.
"Knowing that they really share the same values as I do about good provenance, sustainability, seasonality, and most importantly flavor makes this the most exciting event to be a part of," the source quoted Ptak as stating.
Meanwhile, the source revealed that it was earlier rumored that the couple was making a surprising choice of a banana cake for their grand wedding day. However, the couple is looking all set to break the convention in yet another way.
The source revealed that it was going to be the first time in a royal wedding that the royal couple would not be serving fruitcake to the wedding guests.
