Norfolk, Va. – As the world tunes in to watch Prince Harry and Meghan Markle say “I do” this weekend, revelers can celebrate at home with a vegan version of the couple’s spring-inspired lemon and elderflower wedding cake. PETA U.K. teamed up with British lifestyle blogger and baker Maisie Stedman to make a cruelty-free replica of the three-tiered cake commissioned by the royal couple—which features layers of light and fluffy lemon sponge coated with elderflower syrup, finished with rustic “buttercream” icing, and adorned with fresh spring flowers. A copy of the recipe can be found here.

Additional images of the eye-catching masterpiece can be found here and here.

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—notes that vegan baking is kind to mother cows, who are forcibly impregnated and then separated from their newborns on dairy farms, and to chickens, who are often kept inside tiny, filthy wire cages on egg farms. Eating vegan is also a great way to reduce your risk of suffering from heart disease, strokes, diabetes, obesity, and cancer.
