With an announcement this morning from Kensington Palace, one piece-or slice, if you will-of the royal wedding puzzle slid into place: Prince Harry and his fiancée Meghan Markle have hired London-based Violet Bakery to make their wedding cake. She interviewed the pastry chef for her former lifestyle website, The Tig, which she shut down a year ago as her relationship with Harry intensified. To work out the confectionery plan, Prince Harry and Markle enlisted the help of London pastry chef Claire Ptak, whom Markle once interviewed for her lifestyle blog The Tig. She worked as a pastry chef at Chez Panisse under chef and campaigner Alice Waters. "Limited edition buttercream icings that adorn our birthday cakes, cupcakes, and fill whoopie pies and biscuits, change with the seasons". She started her own business by cooking at home and selling cakes at a stall on east London's Broadway Market. It's fitting that she's basking in the flavours of spring since she simply loves using seasonal ingredients. 'Mum let me mess around in there, ' she tells me. Harry & Meghan: A Royal Affair is probably pretty tame on the sex department, but that's just my guess.
