Princess Eugenie’s stunning wedding cake revealed
This week, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank will tie the knot in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on October 12.
As the palace continues to release information about the nuptials as the day draws closer, details about the couple’s wedding cake have been revealed.
Eugenie and Jack have hired London-based cake designer Sophie Cabot to make their wedding cake.
Just like Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding cake, Eugenie and Jack’s will draw inspiration from the time of the year of their nuptials.
For their May ceremony, Harry and Meghan chose a lemon elderflower cake that featured “the bright flavours of spring” and was decorated with fresh flowers.
Eugenie’s red velvet and chocolate cake will feature rich autumn colours and include detailed sugar work such as ivy.

The couple found out about Cabot through her involvement with Eugenie’s father, The Duke of York’s Pitch@Palace programme, after supplying specially decorated bespoke biscuits.
A statement from Buckingham Palace said: “The couple are delighted that Miss Cabot can be involved in the celebrations for their special day.
“Originally a costume designer, Sophie’s artistic skills and flair come through in her creations, with a particular love for making sugar-flowers and using her hand-painting skills to create unique cakes.”
Discussing her important role in the big day, Cabot 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.”
It has also been revealed that the Eugenie and Jack will be married by the Dean of Windsor, the Rt Revd David Conner.
Internationally renowned singer Andrea Bocelli is set to perform two songs during the wedding ceremony.
Musicians from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) will also perform during the ceremony.
