The baker behind Harry and Meghan’s wedding cake shared the unusual recipe for her favorite food that brings her luck.
Claire Ptak, who runs a bakery in East London, made a lemon and elderflower creation for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on their wedding day in May 2018.
However, Ptak shared a recipe with other top chefs in The Times, revealing that their ultimate comfort food is actually hearty, not sweet – a spaghetti cake.
Ptak explained that the dish is similar to a Spanish omelette, but uses spaghetti instead of potatoes.
She said, “If you make spaghetti for dinner, make sure you make too much (not always?), And then refrigerate it overnight. The next day, break up some eggs, add salt and pepper, and grated Add parmesan and mix in a bowl.
“Throw in the leftover spaghetti and sauté them in a little oil in a non-stick pan, similar to a Spanish tortilla. Slide them onto a plate, turn them over and cook until golden brown. In Cut wedges and serve. “
She said the savory nature of the dish was “perhaps part of its appeal,” despite the name cake.

Ptak used around 200 Amalfi lemons to bake the giant cake for Harry and Meghan for their wedding day.
Her cafe is currently open for take away and prices for her made to order cakes start at £ 40. Lemon elderflower cake is one of the options she still offers for customers to attend the royal wedding day.
Another chef who worked on Harry and Meghan’s wedding recently made history when she became the first female chef to win three Michelin stars at her own restaurant.
Clare Smyth was chosen by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to welcome them at Frogmore House. She also appeared with the Duchess at a later date as she was working on a charity cookbook with survivors of the Grenfell Fire.

Meghan’s love of food was well documented on her website, The Tig, which she closed when she became a high-ranking queen.
