When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got married earlier this year, they broke a number of royal traditions, one of which involved their wedding cake.

Unlike American wedding cakes, royal wedding cakes are customarily Christmas-style fruit cake, so it will last long enough to be served at the couple's first child's christening, but Harry and Meghan choose a spring-inspired lemon elderflower flavor covered in buttercream and decorated with fresh flowers.

Now, Princess Eugenie is following in her cousin Harry's footsteps in eschewing the fruitcake and will be serving a red velvet and chocolate design by London-based baker Sophie Cabot. Eugenie was first introduced to Cabot through the Duke of York’s [email protected] program for which she provided bespoke decorated cookies.

According to Buckingham Palace, Jack and Eugenie's wedding dessert will be "a traditional cake, with a modern feel," and will "incorporate the rich colors of autumn in its design."

The cake will also feature sugar ivy, in a nod to Eugenie and Jack's new home, Ivy Cottage at Kensington Palace. 

"I am incredibly excited to be given this wonderful opportunity to create such a special and unique cake," Cabot said. "It has been lovely working with Princess Eugenie and Jack and I really hope they enjoy the cake on the day."

Eugenie and Jack will marry at Windsor Castle on Friday. Their wedding ceremony will be followed by a short carriage ride around town and a daytime reception thrown by the Queen. Later in the evening, a more intimate reception will be hosted by the Duke of York at Eugenie's childhood home, Royal Lodge.
