2 royal wedding specials to indulge your inner Anglophile

For those of us whose invitations for tomorrow’s royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were lost in the mail, it’s not too late to RSVP for royal-themed specials around St. Louis.

1. La Patisserie Chouquette

La Patisserie Chouquette will host a sold-out watch party at the crack of dawn tomorrow morning. “I remember getting up when I was a kid and watching Diana and Charles. I knew I would have to be at the shop, and I figured if I had to be here, I would find some way to watch it while I was working,” said owner and pastry chef Simone Faure.

Guests at the sold-out party will enjoy freshly baked croissants, Queen’s scones, yogurt parfaits and a slice of wedding cake the same flavor as the royal couple’s. “Because we know weddings, we can definitely pull off our own wedding party,” Faure said. Because the royal wedding cake flavor was so popular, Faure plans to roll it into the regular cake menu for customers.

If you didn’t snag a spot for the party, you can still celebrate Saturday with a special elderflower and lemon curd macaron will be available for purchase. They will be same shade of blue as the royal couple’s commemorative China and covered in 23-karat gold and silver flecks.

The special edition cupcake will be available at both locations of The Cup today, May 18 and Saturday, May 19.
