Will Prince Harry Follow In The Footsteps Of His Brother With THIS Grooms Tradition…
Since the nation has received the confirmation we have all been hoping for of Prince Harry and his bride-to-be Meghan, excitement for another Royal engagement can commence! And boy are we excited for the first look of their big day.
Marie Sinclair, designer at GC Couture, Purveyors of luxury cakes London, shares her expert predictions of the kind of cake that could grace the imminent wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle!
“When it comes to the cake design, I think the happy couple will go for something stylish and elegant. Meghan’s dress sense is timeless, classic and understated. I also believe she will give a nod to English tradition and opt for round white tiers adorned with a beautiful array of cascading flowers.
It would be wonderful to see nods to their cultural traditions come together through in their wedding cake – perhaps a traditional fruitcake tier along with a simple vanilla sponge and perhaps even a red velvet tier – an American favourite!
“GC Couture has added a modern twist to the traditional fruitcake – fruitcake without bits, all the depth and flavour of a traditional fruitcake but with a smooth more sponge-like consistency. A perfect choice for Prince Harry and Meghan – honouring tradition but with the all important contemporary twist.
“The wedding cake is no longer the only sweet treat served to guests at many weddings, indulgence bars have been a long popular wedding trend in the States and we think this is an American wedding tradition that Meghan is most definitely going to want to embrace.
“Our indulgence bars at GC Couture add a bit of luxury and fun to your evening reception and will be a welcome surprise for your guests! A decadent indulgence bar could feature any of your favourite treats – including cupcakes, macaroons, marshmallows, brownies. Meghan will definitely be able to use an indulgence bar to give her wedding guests a taste of her favourite American candies and treats.
“I also predict that Prince Harry will follow in his brother’s footsteps and choose to have a groom’s cake. A groom’s cake is typically a fruitcake and is a British Victorian tradition but in recent times it is more popular in the States. I think Prince Harry will be experimental with his flavour choice and perhaps go for something a little more unique such as coconut and lime or strawberry and champagne.
“No matter what style of wedding cake is chosen by the happy couple, the one thing that is guaranteed is that whatever they choose will most definitely influence couples across the globe as they plan their own weddings!.”
