Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are continuing to break with royal tradition by ordering a lemon cake for their big day instead of fruitcake. "They are very much looking forward to sharing this cake with their wedding guests on May 19th".

Californian pastry chef and food writer Claire Ptak - who owns Violet Bakery in East London - has been enlisted to create the wedding centrepiece. She only uses organic, seasonal ingredients, which is likely a huge plus for health-conscious Markle.

While Ptak has beenthe owner of the Violet Bakery in London, England, since 2010, she is from California, just like Meghan! It will be enrobed in buttercream and decorated with real fresh flowers.

Like Markle, Ptak was raised in California and is now based in London.
