Claire Ptak's recipe

Celebration cake


Cook School’s Violet Cakes Strawberry & Vanilla Celebration Cake box teaches you how to make the ultimate special occasion cake with a recipe and tips from pastry chef and owner of Violet Cakes, Claire Ptak, who most famously made Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding cake! This celebration cake looks and tastes the part and the recipe has been cleverly adapted using chef secrets to make it even easier for little hands! The super light and fluffy sponge is covered in a delicious strawberry buttercream that uses the best freeze dried strawberries for all of the colour and flavour. This cake is ideal for children to bake for a friend, mum, brother, teacher, aunty or any other special person, for a birthday or any other celebration! (And of course, they can make it for themselves too! What better way to celebrate learning to bake than eating the cake they have just created!) We’ve even included a KitchenCraft palette knife inside the kit so you can ice like a pro!

You will need 2 x 20cm cake tins
