The countdown is on for Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s royal wedding, which is set to take place at St George’s Chapel on Friday, and the closer we get, the more details the palace unveils about the big day. Over the weekend, the latest official dispatch revealed that, as well as asking singer Andrea Bocelli to perform during the ceremony, the couple has chosen London-based cake designer Sophie Cabot to make their wedding cake.

Instead of opting for a traditional fruit cake, like Prince William and Kate Middleton, Eugenie and Jack have decided to treat their guests to something a little more of the moment: they will be serving up a red velvet and chocolate creation at their wedding reception.

According to the official palace brief, it will be ‘traditional […] with a modern feel,’ which seems like a pretty good way to describe the pair’s impending nuptials, too. In a nod to their October wedding date, the cake will ‘incorporate the rich colours of autumn in its design and will be covered with detailed sugar work including ivy.

Look back at some of Eugenie's most striking recent style moments in the gallery below...

A night out at Annabel's, May 2018

Clearly Eugenie has a thing for florals. This off-the-shoulder gown is a ditzier print that we usually see the young royal wearing.

The Queen's 92nd birthday concert, April 2018

Though it was Meghan Markle's Stella cape dress that gained the most attention, let's give Eugenie's simple MaxMara shift some appreciation.

The royal wedding, May 2018

A simple, structured dress in powder blue by London label Gainsborough that was worlds away from her 2011 royal wedding ensemble.

The Serpentine summer party, June 2018

For the Serpentine's annual summer bash, Eugenie chose this one-shoulder gown in a bold floral print, which reminds us of one of Princess Diana's '80s ensembles (in the best possible way).

Royal Ascot, June 2018

Eugenie nailed the complex Royal Ascot dress code with this sleek wrapover style by London label Osman and a structured M2Malletier handbag.

A Vogue event, December 2017

Another Erdem moment for Eugenie, this time for a Vogue party in London (she's since re-worn the dress a handful of times, too).

This more autumnal design presents a seasonal contrast to the lemon curd and elderflower buttercream cake enjoyed by guests at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s wedding back in May, but it also includes a sweet nod to a major milestone Eugenie and Jack’s relationship. The ivy sugar work motifs are perhaps a tribute to Ivy Cottage, the Kensington Palace residence that the couple currently share, which is also their first home together.

It’s thought that Eugenie and Jack made the move to the three-bedroom residence back in April, after a two year delay for necessary refurbishments. Before this, the Princess had shared an apartment in St James’s Palace with her older sister, Princess Beatrice.

Cabot, who started her bespoke cake design business in 2014, grew up’ with a love of baking’ and learned her skills from family members. She first came to the couple’s notice through her involvement in the Pitch at the Palace programme, a platform for entrepreneurs headed by Eugenie’s father, the Duke of York.
