The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, are due to have their first baby in a couple of weeks. This will be a momentous occasion for millions across the United Kingdom and the rest of the world, with many celebrating the baby’s arrival in unique ways.
One of those is the world-famous Magnolia Bakery. Following the royal baby’s birth, the bakery will debut a special Royal Baby cupcake at its locations in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, and Washington, D.C.
The Royal Baby cupcake will be a flower cupcake – in pink or blue, depending on the sex of the baby – and will be topped with a crown. The cupcake will cost $5.75 each and will be either vanilla or chocolate-flavored.
This is not the first time Magnolia has celebrated a moment in the Duke and Duchess’ relationship. For the couple’s royal wedding, the bakery offered cakes and cupcakes made from an elderflower base (much like their wedding cake) filled with lemon curd and iced with an elderflower meringue buttercream. The cupcake also featured a lace cupcake wrapper and a bejeweled crown, while the cake featured pearl borders.
