The baker who made the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s wedding cake has revealed a new snap of a 244 floral two-tier strawberry buttercream cake, which was baked fresh for Lilibet’s first birthday.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle enjoyed the summer sunshine and hosted a “relaxed garden party” in June 2022 for their daughter’s first birthday in the Windsor estate. The gathering included cake, balloons, party games and picnic snacks.
Claire Ptak, the East London baker who made the couples wedding cake in 2018, created other baked goods for the low-key garden party including the cake that was a two tier seasonal strawberry buttercream.
She shared a snap of the creation on Instagram, as a part of the 2022 highlights reel saying: “Our 2022 Greatest Hits. Thank you to all our customers and supporters over the last year for inspiring such beautiful work.”
“Thank you to my incredible team for executing it all with so much fun, humour and passion.”
In the snap, she can be seen placing a pink peonie onto the cake, which featured the youngster’s name. It was complete with an Amalfi lemon and elderflower filling and covered in a light buttercream.
On the bakery’s website, the cake is described as having “three layers of vanilla sponge drizzled with elderflower syrup and filled with Amalfi lemon curd.”
The top and sides of the cake are “iced with a buttercream scented with the juice and zest of lemons from the Amalfi coast, and decorated with chopped candied Amalfi lemon peel.”
At the time, Claire who owns the bakery and carefully designed the incredible cake – wrote on the brand’s Instagram: “It was an absolute pleasure to make this special cake last week for Lilibet’s birthday. Wishing her a very happy year ahead!”
