CHIPPING Sodbury residents will be able to get a distinct flavour of the royal wedding, thanks to a very special batch of cakes.

In honour of the upcoming nuptials, Hobbs House Bakery are making a version of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s lemon and elderflower royal wedding cake.

The couple’s cake is being made by royal wedding baker Claire Ptak of east London’s Violet Bakery, and is likely to cost thousands of pounds, but Hobbs has created mini replicas that taste almost identical, which customers can buy for just £2.15 each.

The bakers will launch the sponges in store from May 15 for one week - the week of Harry and Meghan’s nuptials on May 19 at St George’s Chapel, Windsor.

“The cakes are lemon and elderflower friands, a classic almond friend, flavoured with lemon and elderflower, with an elderflower icing and topped with edible elderflower,” said Jo Cox, of Hobbs.

Hobb’s Chipping Sodbury branch currently has a royal wedding window display, with loaves of bread piled high like a wedding cake, and finished off with a gingerbread Harry and Meghan on top.
