Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Royal Wedding Cake Sneak Peek

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Royal Wedding Cake

With the royal wedding just one day away, Chef Claire Ptak is giving a behind-the-scenes look at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s wedding cake.

According to Kensington Palace, a three-part layered lemon and elderflower cake will be served at the wedding reception and is a break from the traditional fruitcake typically served at British weddings.

The recipe calls for 200 Amalfi lemons, 500 organic eggs from Suffolk, 20 kgs of butter, 20 kgs of flour, 20 kgs of sugar, and ten bottles of Sandringham Elderflower Cordial.

Ptak has been working with her team of six bakers for the last five days to create the royal wedding cake.

“The cake is made up of lemon sponge. It has an elderflower syrup drizzle. It has an Amalfi lemon curd, and then it has a Swiss meringue buttercream with elderflower,” Ptak explains in the Instagram video.

Last month, Kensington Palace revealed that Meghan and Harry asked Ptak “to create a lemon elderflower cake that will incorporate the bright flavors of spring.”

The statement, added that “It will be covered with buttercream and decorated with fresh flowers.”

Meghan and Prince Harry will wed at noon local time (7 a.m. EST), at Windsor Castle, on Saturday, May 19. Prince Charles will walk Meghan down the aisle, Kensington Palace has said in a statement.

After the ceremony, the couple will take to an open-topped, horse-drawn carriage for a procession around Windsor.
