"The red velvet and chocolate cake will be a traditional cake, with a modern feel. It will incorporate the rich colours of autumn in its design and will be covered with detailed sugar work including ivy."
Cabot—who grew up with a love of baking and learned her skills from her grandmother and mother—started her bespoke cake design business in 2014. She was recognized by the couple through her involvement with the Duke of York’s Pitch@Palace programme, where she supplied specially decorated bespoke biscuits.
Cabot was originally a costume designer, and the palace said that her artistic skills are apparent in her unique creations. The baker loves creating sugar flower designs and hand-painting on her confectionary creations.
“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.”
