The Duke and Duchess of Sussex bought a £244 floral two-tier strawberry buttercream cake for Lilibet’s first birthday – the same baker who made the couple’s wedding cake in 2018.
Harry and Meghan enjoyed the British summer sunshine and hosted a ‘relaxed’ garden party over the weekend for their daughter in the Windsor estate with birthday cake, balloons, party games and picnic snacks.
East London baker Claire Ptak – who made the couple’s wedding cake in 2018 – created treats for the low-key bash, including a two-tier cake that featured a seasonal strawberry buttercream.
Lilibet’s cake featured the youngster’s name and was adorned with an array of pink-hued peonies – complete with an Amalfi lemon and elderflower filling and covered in a light buttercream.
On the bakeries website, the cake is described as having ‘three layers of vanilla sponge drizzled with elderflower syrup and filled with Amalfi lemon curd.’
The top and sides of the cake are ‘iced with a buttercream scented with the juice and zest of lemons from the Amalfi coast, and decorated with chopped candied Amalfi lemon peel.’
Claire Ptak – who owns the bakery and carefully designed the incredible cake – wrote on the brand’s Instagram: ‘It was an absolute pleasure to make this special cake last week for Lilibet’s birthday. Wishing her a very happy year ahead!’
Violet Cakes, who made the incredible cake wrote on their Instagram: ‘The inside was the Amalfi lemon and elderflower cake I created for the Duke and Duchess’s wedding in 2018, but this time we covered it with a strawberry buttercream specially for Lilibet.’

Meanwhile, the duke and duchess are said to have introduced their little girl to the Queen – nicknamed Lilibet as a child – last week at Windsor after attending a private Royal Family lunch at Buckingham Palace following Trooping the Colour.
