We already knew that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were letting protocol slide at their upcoming royal wedding, but their wedding cake is more trendy than traditional — and feels like something straight off someone’s rustic chic wedding Pinterest board. According to a press release via the Kensington Palace Twitter account, the couple has chosen Claire Ptak, owner of London-based bakery Violet Cakes, to create their wedding cake.
Yes to the lifestyle blog-ification of the royal wedding!
And just to buck tradition even further, there’s a very good chance this wedding will see some vegan or gluten-free goodies as well. Markle has previously said she likes to eat vegan when she can and Violet Cakes makes a vegan chocolate, spelt, and agave layer cake, plus two different gluten-free cakes made with almond flour.
Here’s a selection of Violet Cake’s beautiful flower-adorned desserts.
We’re obsessed with these beautiful naked and floral cakes, and seriously rooting for the most #trendy #nontraditional #rusticchic royal wedding ever. We’re talking mason jars and succulents as a wedding favor. C’mon Markle, don’t let us down.
