8. The Cake
Usually royal wedding feature a multi-tiered fruit cake, that’s not even eaten at the wedding. Instead it’s given to guests to take home after the wedding. This time, however, the royal couple decided to break tradition. They went for a lemon elderflower cake, that wasn’t tiered, but incorporated of the best flavors of spring. It was made by Violet Bakery’s Claire Ptak, who was featured on Meghan’s blog The Tig a couple of years prior. The cake was also decorated with flowers – branches of beech, birch and hornbeam, white garden roses, peonies and foxgloves picked from the gardens of Crown Estate and Windsor Park.
