New Delhi: Cakes are important parts of wedding ceremonies. With the royal wedding in question, the cake in question has to be even more majestic and exquisite than the usual.
The couple, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, has chosen lemon elderflower cake to be served at their wedding. Though the cake sounds refreshing, it is a break from the traditional fruit cake, which is usually served at British weddings.
The official handle of The Royal Family shared a video of the Pastry chef Claire Ptak, preparing the flavourful wedding cake.
The tweet read, “Watch as baker Claire Ptak begins work on the #RoyalWedding Cake!”
