The royal wedding is drawing closer. With Prince Harry and Meghan Markle set to marry at Windsor Castle on May 19 to a crowd of 2600.
So it’s time to take a look past what the bride is going to wear, or who is performing and turn our attentions to the food. Most importantly what they’re going to eat on the big day.
The lucky pastry chef creating the cake is Claire Ptak, owner of London Bakery – Violet.
The mouth-watering masterpiece will be infused with lemon and elderflower, and decorated with buttercream and fresh flowers. Sounds delicious!
Slices of the cake will be presented in gift boxes at the end of the night. It’s also understood, that some members of the public in the streets of Windsor may even be granted a taste to thank them for their support.
It has been suggested that the royal couple have hired catering from Table Talk for their big day. The London-based company catered Will and Kate’s wedding reception in 2011, and Pippa Middleton’s wedding in May 2017.
For royal weddings, it’s traditional for them to take pace earlier in the day. In the case of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridges wedding, the ceremony was then followed by a wedding breakfast, a luncheon held by the Queen, and later, a more intimate evening reception featuring a sit-down dinner.
Guests at Will and Kate’s wedding were treated to a three-course menu of salmon, lamb, and a trio of desserts: Berkshire honey ice cream, sherry trifle, and chocolate parfait.
Although the exact menu for this year’s royal wedding is most certainly staying under wraps, as Meghan herself is a self-proclaimed “foodie”, so it will no doubt be a flavoursome affair.
