As the countdown to the royal wedding nears its end, London’s iconic Harrods department store commemorates the event with a lavish display of 18 extravagant, multi-tiered wedding cakes in their famous Brompton Road windows. With illustrious names from the worlds of fashion, fine jewelry, food, and interiors such as Van Cleef & Arpels, Montblanc, Estée Lauder, Escada, Lalique, Jo Malone, and more, the stunning confectionaries will be displayed until Saturday, April 30.
The cakes each stand a meter high and their designers had been specially commissioned by Harrods to create their ultimate royal wedding cake. Each of the elaborate cakes will be housed in their own window display surrounded by ornate blue and silver framing. From Van Cleef & Arpels’ stunning, crystal-studded fairytale cake to Laduree’s tower of their famous macaroons, the extraordinary display is a unique and beautiful tribute to the imminent royal nuptials.
Since the cakes’ unveiling on April 26, huge crowds of people have gone to the already famed window shopping destination to catch a glimpse of the magnificent creations before they are dismantled on April 30. Additional to the cakes, the windows also feature installments of photographs of previous royal weddings from Queen Victoria’s marriage to Prince Albert in 1840 to Prince Andrew’s wedding to Sarah Ferguson in 1986.
