Claire Ptak to Make Royal Wedding Cake

THE WEDDING OF HRH PRINCE HENRY OF WALES AND MS. MEGHAN MARKLE 

CLAIRE PTAK TO MAKE THE ROYAL WEDDING CAKE

For their wedding cake Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle have chosen pastry chef Claire Ptak, owner of London based culinary gem Violet Bakery.

Prince Harry and Ms. Markle have asked Ms. Ptak to create a lemon elderflower cake to incorporate the bright flavours of spring. It will be covered with buttercream and decorated with fresh flowers. They are very much looking forward to sharing this cake with their wedding guests on May 19th.

California-raised, Ms. Ptak formerly worked as a pastry chef under the legendary Alice Waters at Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California. Upon moving to London she worked at The Anchor and Hope and staged at St John and Moro. Ms. Ptak then started her own business as a market stall on Broadway Market, East London, cooking from home.

She opened Violet Bakery in 2010, with a focus on using high quality, seasonal and organic ingredients in her cakes, and works as a food stylist and food writer.

Ms. Markle had previously interviewed Ms. Ptak for her former lifestyle website TheTig.com where she celebrated food and travel, and featured interviews with friends and role models to discuss philanthropy and community.

Claire Ptak said:

“I can’t tell you how delighted I am to be chosen to make Prince Harry and Ms. Markle’s wedding cake. 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.”
