April 27, 2011 - PRLog -- It appears that the entire world is heading to London this coming Friday for the upcoming Royal Wedding. Attracting an estimated 600,000 tourists to the country’s capital, there won’t be an empty shop, cafe or restaurant in London as everybody joins to celebrate the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton (

In amongst the huge amounts of royal wedding ( memorabilia, ranging from tacky mugs to the equally tacky tea towels, there will be a host of especially themed items and places for London tourists to spend their cash on whilst visiting during the Royal Wedding. However, there are a few quintessentially English activities in which you may wish to partake, just to make the experience that extra bit... English.

Situated in Battersea Reach, the luxury riverside development in South West London, Cake Boy Boutique is waiting to pamper you with its decadent chandeliers and sumptuous upholstered leather armchairs in a vast array of jewel colours. The boutique’s Master Patissier will be on hand to provide a wonderful afternoon treat for you. Meet Eric Lanlard, renowned for his ‘Baking Mad’ series on Channel 4.

Eric has twice won the prestigious Continental Patissier of the Year at the British Baking Awards, and has successfully changed the face of British Patisserie through his bespoke cake making brand. A combination of Savoir design and a reputation for superlative cakes has earned Eric a range of A-list clientele including Madonna, Claudia Schiffer, Liz Hurley and Elton John – he will also shortly be creating a fabulous wedding cake for Delicious magazine’s Royal Wedding Special.

This hands-on baking experience takes place at the Cake Boy Boutique itself, hidden away within the state-of-the art workshop where you can have a go at creating twelve of your very own tasty cupcake masterpieces! You will promptly learn how to spread and pipe buttercream icing like an expert in addition to using vibrant paste colours, before rolling and cutting icing to create decorative shapes with which to adorn your cakes. Glitter, sprinkles, and much more will be provided guaranteeing your cupcakes will be truly special, a perfect commemoration to this special Royal day.

Tea, coffee and a multitude of snacks will be on hand in order to replenish your energy levels constantly. The Cake Boy cafe offers a stylish and relaxing environment in which you can enjoy these treats, all of which are freshly made by Eric on the day you arrive. Afternoon tea is a truly special experience with its selection of the best quality organic tea and ornate, delicious cupcakes (

Cake Boy is situated within a peaceful, contemporary boulevard alongside the River Thames, and provided the Royal Wedding isn’t rained upon, there is plenty of outside seating available where you can enjoy the beautiful London views.

So why not top off your Royal weekend with some traditional English views combined with some quality English baking?
