Earlier this month, family and close friends of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex celebrated baby Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor’s first birthday with an intimate garden picnic held at Frogmore Cottage, where the guests were treated to make-up and cake. Now, baker Claire Ptak has shared a first look at the special personalized one-year-old birthday cake.
Ptak, who baked Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan’s cake for their 2018 wedding, posted a behind-the-scenes look at how Lilibet’s treat was made. The two-tiered cake was covered in pale pink frosting and multiple pink and white peonies. It also included an orange flag cake topper that spelled out her name.
“It was an absolute pleasure to make this special cake last week for Lilibet’s birthday,” Ptak captioned the photo. “I wish him a very happy new year ahead!”

Fans around the world have donated more than $100,000 to World Central Kitchen in honor of Lili’s major milestone, a spokesperson previously confirmed to BAZAAR.com. WCK, an organization close to the heart of the Sussexes, responds to humanitarian, climate and community crises by providing meals to people in need. More recently, the charity has operated in Uvalde, Texas following the elementary school shooting and in Ukraine after Russia launched a military invasion.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex returned to the UK in early June, bringing Lili and their three-year-old son Archie with them, to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee. The visit marked their first official public appearance in the country since stepping down as senior members of the royal family in 2020.
