A red velvet and chocolate cake is set to be the centrepiece of Princess Eugenie’s wedding feast.
It is being crafted by London-based cake designer Sophie Cabot, who described it as “special and unique”, featuring rich autumn colours and detailed sugar work.
Princess Eugenie, who is the Queen’s granddaughter and ninth in line to the throne, will marry Jack Brooksbank at St George’s Chapel, Windsor, on Friday October 12.
Ms Cabot, who was a costume designer before turning her hand to bespoke cake making, said: “I am incredibly excited to be given this wonderful opportunity to create such a special and unique cake.
“It has been lovely working with Princess Eugenie and Jack and I really hope they enjoy the cake on the day.”
She launched her business in 2014 and came to the attention of the couple after supplying specially-decorated biscuits to an event for the Duke of York’s Pitch@Palace programme for entrepreneurs.
Meanwhile, the wedding service itself will feature a personal prayer written by Archbishop of York John Sentamu.
Italian singer-songwriter Andrea Bocelli will perform two pieces during the service, with members of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) also featuring.
A military flavour to the proceedings including involvement from the Household Division will help reflect Mr Brooksbank’s family history. His great-grandfather Sir Jack Coke was an officer in the Scots Guards.
State trumpeters from the band of the Household Cavalry will perform a fanfare.
The newlyweds will walk past a line of Nijmegen Company Grenadier Guards as they leave the chapel and pipers from the 2nd Battalion the Royal Regiment of Scotland will play as they set off for a carriage ride through Windsor.
