Besides being a small business owner, Claire Ptak also is a food writer & stylist, recipe developer and consultant.
It was announced back in March that American pastry chef Claire Ptak would be the royal wedding cake baker. Ptak owns the east London bakery Violet Cakes. Traditionally, the royal wedding cake is a tall and grand fruitcake adorned with flowers and intricate piping. However, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are breaking that tradition with their lemon elderflower cake decorated with fresh flowers. Traditional or not, it sounds delicious to us!
The recipe for the cake is not being disclosed, but if you want to try your hand at making the royal wedding cake, check out this article
