  • Princess Eugenie tied-the-knot day (12 October) and she’s taking a leaf out of Prince Harry and Meghan’s book by parting with tradition and choosing a wedding cake flavour she really likes…

    Five months on from when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied-the-knot, the second royal wedding of the year has taken place and we’re very excited about the cake!

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle went for an elderflower lemon drizzle cake for their spring wedding and Princess Eugenie and her husband-to-be Jack Brooksbank have parted with tradition too.

    For their big day, Princess Eugenie and Jack are serving chocolate and red velvet cake, baked by London-based cake designer Sophie Cabot.

    The cake is autumn-themed and traditional but Buckingham Palace said it will also have a ‘modern feel’.

    Sophie will decorate the cake with detailed sugar work including ivy blackberries and will use colours you associate with autumn in the design.

    She first came to the attention of Eugenie and Jack when she supplied form specially decorated biscuits for the Duke of York’s Pitch At Palace programme.

    Speaking about the pressure of baking a royal wedding cake Sophie revealed: ‘I am incredibly excited to be given this wonderful opportunity to create such a special and unique cake. It has been lovely working with Princess Eugenie and Jack and I really hope they enjoy the cake on the day.’

    We’re sure the chocolate cake is going to be a hit with the guests and especially all the children who are attending…

    On Wednesday it was revealed that Prince George and Princess Charlotte would be part of the pageboy and bridesmaid parties and we know they’ve both got a sweet spot for chocolate.

    While at their uncle’s wedding it was reported that Kate and the nanny kept the children on their best behaviour by giving them Smarties!
