by rima@hitched

Last week Prince Harry and Meghan Markle confirmed that Claire Ptak of Violet Bakery would be creating their lemon and elderflower wedding cake – a design which is bound to cost thousands.

Creating a more affordable version of the royal dessert, high street supermarket Iceland have released their own lemon and elderflower cake that looks almost identical to the ones Claire Ptak has created – and it costs just £8.

The supermarket is planning to launch the frozen two-tiered buttercream sponge cake in stores on 14th May, the week of Harry and Meghan’s wedding.

The cake will be on sale for just one week in light of the royal celebrations and will make a perfect addition to any wedding parties taking place over the weekend!

The Iceland design looks very similar to some of the bakes that Claire Ptak and the team at Violet Bakery have created in the past with an ivory buttercream frosting and minimal decorations.

Speaking about the new release, head chef at Iceland, Neil Nugent, said: "We want our customers to enjoy the royal wedding celebrations in style and what better way to do that than raising a glass of champagne to the newlyweds and having a slice of their actual wedding cake - well kind of.

"The cake features everything the royal couple has asked for including a shimmery finish with chocolate pearls, light sponge and fragrant buttercream.

"I'd also recommend adding some wild flowers decoration to keep up the royal theme."

Claire Ptak almost always uses floral decor on her designs so they might be on to something here!

Could Iceland's design and Claire's style be a hint at the style of cake that Harry and Meghan may choose? And will you be purchasing the frozen pudding to celebrate the upcoming royal wedding?
