10 Vegan Recipes for Your Royal Wedding Party

1. Lemon and Elderflower Wedding Cake

Vegan Bake-Off Winner Creates Vegan Version of the Royal Wedding Cake

Cake first. This vegan lemon and elderberry sponge cake was created by the winner of PETA’s 2016 Great Vegan Bake-Off, Maisie Stedman. The royal couple will be serving a non-vegan version of this elegant spring dessert, and Stedman took it upon herself to create and share a recipe that everyone can enjoy. There’s no doubt this cake is divine, but the real question is, do royal couples smash cake into each other’s faces?

10. Pimm’s and Lemonade

A cocktail for the commoners, Pimm’s is a British alcohol that has been guzzled by us groundlings since the 1800s. The company makes a few different versions, but to honor Prince Harry’s love of vodka, opt for the Pimm’s No. 6, which is made with vodka instead of rum or gin. Pour over ice and mix with lemonade, then add fresh fruit and cucumber slices. Be warned: you’ll want to make a pitcher of this.
