On Saturday 19th May 2018, Harry and Meghan will tie the knot in St George’s Chapel of Windsor Castle. Ever the thoughtful neighbour, the Windsor Fudge Kitchen in adjacent Thames Street has spent months perfecting a brand newLemon and Elderflower fudge recipe to celebrate the occasion.
Inspired by Claire Ptak’s Lemon & Elderberry wedding cake, chosen by the couple, this is summer in a slice, combining all natural, fresh whipping cream, lemon zest and natural elderflower; for that classic citrus zing, gently mellowed by the floral sweetness of elderflower, all regally decorated with edible glitter and chocolate crowns.
Like all Fudge Kitchen ‘slab’ fudge, it is hand made in full view of visitors, using the traditional technique of “slabbing and loafing” (left), where warm flourishes of fudge are theatrically turned on a marble counter as the fudge cools, breaking up granulation and creating the creamiest, smoothest fudge available. Meltingly soft in the centre, deliciously firm on the edge, a Prince amongst confectionery!
The hand made, four slice Royal Wedding Collection gift box will be available from the 4th May to the 20th July 2018.
