Princess Eugenie and Jack's wedding cake will be traditional "with a modern feel"

By Jessica Pollack

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank will wed in less than a week and another sweet detail about their big day on Oct. 12 has been revealed. The couple's wedding cake will be created by London-based cake designer Sophie Cabot, who will craft a dessert that Kensington Palace called "a traditional cake, with a modern feel." Like Eugenie's cousins, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the couple has decided to shirk the tradition of an iced fruit cake for something sure to satisfy any sweet tooth!

The bride-to-be, 28, and her longtime love, 32, have selected a red velvet and chocolate cake to fete their first day of wedded bliss. With Sophie's expertise in sugar flowers and painting, the gorgeous confection will be decorated with ivy, which also features on the couple's wedding china and is likely a nod to their home at Kensington Palace, Ivy Cottage.

Sophie, who has worked with Eugenie's father, Prince Andrew, creating biscuits for events as part of his Pitch@Palace program, is thrilled to have worked with the couple. "I am incredibly excited to be given this wonderful opportunity to create such a special and unique cake," she told HELLO! in a statement. "It has been lovely working with Princess Eugenie and Jack and I really hope they enjoy the cake on the day."

Sarah Ferguson's daughter is poised to have the second royal wedding of the year, a star-studded Windsor affair that will see guests taking part in two days of festivities. Following the ceremony at St George's Chapel, the Queen will host an afternoon luncheon. Hopefully clad in a second bridal look, Eugenie will then head to an evening reception with Jack at the family's Windsor home, Royal Lodge. The following day, a festival-themed bash will reportedly find famous friends and family sipping on cocktails as they play funfair games and snack on carnival fare. The countdown is on!
