Lilibet Diana celebrated her first birthday with a cake fit for a royal.

On Friday, Violet Cakes Bakery in London shared a photo of the custom pink floral creation for Lilibet’s big day, which she celebrated in Windsor June 4 during the celebrations of her great-grandmother’s Platinum Jubilee.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry brought both of their children, Lilibet and her 3-year-old brother Archie, for the Jubilee honoring the Queen’s 70 years on the throne. It was Lili’s first visit to the UK and the first time she met Queen Elizabeth, 96. The 1-year-old is named for the monarch, as Lilibet was the Queen’s childhood nickname.

On Instagram Friday, Violet Cakes owner and baker Claire Ptak offered details about the special birthday cake, writing, “The inside was the Amalfi lemon and elderflower cake I created for the Duke and Duchess’s wedding in 2018, but this time we covered it with a strawberry buttercream specially for Lilibet 💕”
