"I can't tell you how delighted I am to be chosen to make Prince Harry and Ms. Markle's wedding cake," Ptak said in a statement released by Kensington Palace. "Knowing that they really share the same values as I do about food provenance, sustainability, seasonality and most importantly flavour, makes this the most exciting event to be a part of."
Traditionally the top layer of the Royal wedding cake is a fruit cake, to be preserved and served at the christening of the couple's first child. Kate Middleton and Prince William also opted to break tradition for their 2011 wedding too. At his wedding Prince William requested a "groom's cake" made of cookies and chocolate. On that occasion, the "chocolate biscuit cake" was served alongside the official wedding cake, a fruitcake.
