Bake Off stars volunteer cake-making services for the royal wedding
Selasi Gbormittah joked that he had daydreamed about being given the royal honour.
The baker – a fan favourite in last year’s competition – joked that he had daydreamed about the couple considering him for the honour in a light-hearted Twitter post.
Sharing a photo of the prince and Ms Markle as they announced their happy news on Monday, he wrote: “Meghan: Can Selasi make our cake Harry? Harry: haha, now that’d be splendid! If only he has time and doesn’t mind! Friend: Selasi wake up…#Daydreaming #RoyalWedding.”

His comments come as he makes a return to the Bake Off tent with former hopeful Val Stones, this time judging the skills of series host Paul Hollywood in his new show Paul Hollywood: A Baker’s Life.
Candice Brown, who won the 2016 baking contest, also hinted that her wedding cake services would be available to the soon-to-be newlyweds.
Shortly after announcing her own engagement, she commented on the royal news over Twitter: “I love this soooooo much!!!!! Congratulations Harry and Meghan!! I make a mean wedding cake #theonlythingwehaveincommon #engagedamonthapart.”
This year’s contest winner Sophie Faldo, the show’s first victor since its move to Channel 4, added: “I am available to make the cake. #justsaying.”
With only a few details about the upcoming wedding so far announced, there is no word as yet about plans for a cake.
On Tuesday it was revealed that the big day – some time in May – will take place in St George’s Chapel in Windsor. It will be funded by the royal family and will be full of “fun and joy”, according to a royal spokesman.
