The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, have announced the birth of their baby, a boy. The child is seventh in line to the British throne, behind the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Cambridge and his children, and Prince Harry.
This is 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. To honor the royal baby’s birth, the bakery is debuting a special Royal Baby cupcake at its locations in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, and Washington, D.C.
The Royal Baby cupcake is a flower cupcake – colored blue for the sex of the baby – and is topped with a crown. The cupcake costs $5.75 each and will be either vanilla or chocolate-flavored. It will be available in stores today starting at noon, as well as all-day tomorrow.
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.
