Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s Wedding Cake Will Break Royal Tradition

They’ll be serving a chocolate and red velvet dessert on their big day.

When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got married earlier this year, they broke a number of royal traditions, one of which involved their wedding cake.

Unlike American wedding cakes, royal wedding cakes are customarily Christmas-style fruit cake, so it will last long enough to be served at the couple’s first child’s christening, but Harry and Meghan choose a spring-inspired lemon elderflower flavor covered in buttercream and decorated with fresh flowers.

Now, Princess Eugenie is following in her cousin Harry’s footsteps in eschewing the fruit cake, and will be serving a red velvet and chocolate design by London-based baker Sophie Cabot. Eugenie was first introduced to Cabot through the Duke of York’s Pitch@Palace program for which she provided bespoke decorated cookies.

According to Buckingham Palace, Jack and Eugenie’s wedding dessert will be “a traditional cake, with a modern feel,” and will “incorporate the rich colours of autumn in its design.”

The cake will also feature sugar ivy, in a nod to Eugenie and Jack’s new home, Ivy Cottage at Kensington Palace.

“I am incredibly excited to be given this wonderful opportunity to create such a special and unique cake,” Cabot said. “It has been lovely working with Princess Eugenie and Jack and I really hope they enjoy the cake on the day.”

Eugenie and Jack will marry at Windsor Castle on Friday. Their wedding ceremony will be followed by a short carriage ride around town and a daytime reception thrown by the Queen. Later in the evening, a more intimate reception will be hosted by the Duke of York at Eugenie’s childhood home, Royal Lodge.
