The Coronation of King Charles III is fast approaching, and it is set to be a celebration that has not been seen since the official crowning of the late Queen in 1953. With tens of millions expected to watch on TV, countless street parties, and a nationwide bank holiday, many will be looking forward to enjoying the historical moment with a quintessentially British pairing – tea and cake.
Cake manufacturer Sponge.co.uk, the UK’s largest independent online cake manufacturer, has revealed the perfect cake pairings for each member of the Royal Family, including King Charles and the Queen Consort, the Prince and Princess of Wales, and of course, Prince Harry.
Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex – Ginger and Walnut Carrot Cake
Prince Harry’s personality is best matched with the “ginger and walnut carrot cake.” The flavour combinations in this cake truly represent the Duke of Sussex, as it is fruity and has a tinge of spice.
Kate, Princess of Wales – Victoria Sponge
Kate, often ranked as one of the most beloved and influential members of the Royal Family, is perfectly matched with the “Victoria Sponge” cake. The Victoria Sponge is classy, quintessentially British, and universally popular.
William, Prince of Wales – Chocolate and Caramel
Prince William best suits the chocolate and caramel cake. Both are smooth, soft, and reliable for any occasion.
Sarah, Duchess of York – Nutella Cake
The Duchess of York’s personality is perfectly represented by the “Nutella cake.” Like the cake, Fergie is a bit nutty and not everyone’s first choice, but once given a chance, both the cake and Fergie will prove a welcomed, unique choice.
Anne, Princess Royal – Lemon Drizzle
Anne’s personality reflects that of the “lemon drizzle” – zingy, sharp, and her conversations juicy. Lemon drizzle, like the Princess Royal, is quite a traditional choice that nobody would seemingly regret.
Prince George of Wales – Rainbow Cake
Prince George is perfectly matched with the “rainbow cake.” The cake is fun, innocent, admired by all, and never receives a frosty reception.
Camilla, Queen Consort – Red Velvet Cake
The “red velvet cake” was the perfect choice for the Queen Consort. It is romantic, passionate, and bright, just like Camilla’s feelings towards her King.
King Charles III – Kale and Apple Cake
For King Charles III, Sponge.co.uk chose the “kale and apple cake.” The bright green color of the cake represents Charles’ never-ending support for greater sustainability and protecting the environment.
Each member of the Royal Family has a completely different cake to match their unique personality. Do you agree with the choices? Are there any missed Royals here?
