Meghan Markle’s Personalised Birthday Cake Looks Ridiculously Delicious

Fit for a royal

Meghan Markle celebrated her 38th birthday on the 4th of August, her first as mother to Archie Harrison and second as part of the British royal family. So what does a Duchess do to celebrate? Eat a carrot cake, of course.

According to Good Morning America, Meghan’s personalised carrot cake was done by London-based Luminary Bakery, which she highlighted in her guest-edited issue of British Vogue.

As well as the three-tiered cake having ‘Happy Birthday Meghan’ written on top in chocolate icing, it featured orange slices, pumpkin seeds and rosemary garnishes. 

The bakery, which is in northeast London, is dedicated to empowering women from disadvantaged backgrounds by teaching them how to bake. Meghan highlighted the company as one of her Forces for Change, which she first spoke about in Vogue and has now continued via her and Harry’s official Instagram account. “To have someone like the Duchess acknowledge us and champion us is incredible,” Luminary Bakery CEO Alice Williams told GMA. “I think it will open a lot of doors for us. There’s so many more women that need opportunities.”

“When I applied for this job I did not expect that I’d be making a cake for Duchess Meghan Markle,” baker Caoimhe Bennett said. “That was pretty crazy and being in Vogue, that’s amazing.”

According to royal commentator, Omid Scobie, Meghan celebrated her birthday at her home, Frogmore Cottage in Windsor. The royals reportedly wanted a low-key celebration with the family.
