Hold On to Your Fascinators , We Made an Unofficial Royal Wedding Cake Recipe . Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are getting married, which seemed like a good reason to bake a lemon and elderflower cake with raspberry filling and buttercream frosting. May 15, 2018.

It’s like my entire life has been leading up to this royal wedding. Oh wait, that’s what I said about the last one. I love the royals! And the corgis, the fascinator hats, the gossip columns, the big houses, the Range Rovers, the sold-out dresses, the ancient and outdated traditions, all of it! So I couldn’t be more elated to share this definitely unofficial royal wedding cake, three tiers and 12 layers of lemon-elderflower cake with raspberry filling, made for the occasion of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding by Bon Appétit’s own Claire Saffitz.

We only knew a few things about the real cake, which is in the hands of Violet Bakery’s Claire Ptak. Per Kensington Palace: “Prince Harry and Ms. Markle have asked Claire to create a lemon elderflower cake that will incorporate the bright flavours of spring. It will be covered with buttercream and decorated with fresh flowers.”

But one of those flavors also coincides perfectly with another major upcoming event: The Royal Wedding of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle. The first of the recently announced cane sugar-sweetened soda flavors, Rhubarb & Strawberry Soda, sounds perfectly delicious and tart in its own right. The second, however, may or may not have been an intentional nod to Harry and Meghan.

BA’s Claire took cues from Ptak’s style, a natural-edged buttercream frosting that has a homemade but woke-up-like- this beauty (the trick: use a bench scraper to apply). The sponge inside is soaked with St.-Germain elderflower liqueur and lemon juice, which gives it a fragrant, bright taste. All in all, the St.-Germain is very subtle (it doesn’t taste “boozy”). We recommend using the leftover liqueur in a Champagne cocktail.

We have instructions for a dramatic tiered version, if you’re going full Mrs. Patmore for this royal wedding. (If so, see you bright and early Saturday morning!) You can make the cake layers ahead and freeze them, and then assemble and frost it later. The base recipe makes two 10” cakes, which is more manageable than building a tiered cake, but still 4 total layers, because we’re not messing around, this is CAKE. Either way, you should probably eat it for breakfast, wearing something feathery on your head, while bidding furiously online for a commemorative mug—something, anything!—to remember this special moment. And it will be a special moment, if the cake signifies anything.

The fascinator is more prevalent in the UK than it is here in the States ( we only tend to see Here are four examples of easy fascinators that can be made with a little sewing or a little gluing. I’ve made some with clips that will clip into my hair or onto a headband with a ribbon made to hold a clip in place.

In the history of royal wedding cakes, as with royal everything, things have been stiff. The cake, per British custom dating back to pre-refrigeration days, is usually a dense, brick fruitcake that can be made months ahead. The frosting and decorations (royal seals and family insignia in marzipan) budge as little as the Queen’s Guard. They do. Not. Budge.

Fun fact: In 2015, a (frozen) slice of this fruitcake sold for $1,375 at auction, and another one is on the auction block in June.

Fun fact: Per the cake’s baker, Fiona Cairns, they cut the cake and served it for breakfast before the wedding, which is why we don’t get to revel in wedding photos of royals awkwardly slicing cake together. And, uh, it “matured” for two months before the wedding. Again: fruitcake. The top tier of the cake was saved and served to lucky guests at Prince George’s christening in 2013.

The Fascinating Reason Why British Royals Save the Top of Their Wedding Cake

  The Fascinating Reason Why British Royals Save the Top of Their Wedding Cake Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been shaking it up in terms of royal wedding traditions. Unlike American tradition where the cake top is saved (and stored in the back of the freezer) to be enjoyed on the first anniversary, the British royal family has a different purpose for saving their cake: to serve at their future children’s christenings. How sweet! (Pun intended.
