Sophie's Instagram upload saw her delicately apply decorative flowers and sweet berries to the cake's three tiers.
She told followers: "With great excitement I am able to announce that I will be making the wedding cake for Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank. It has been the biggest secret I've ever had to keep!!"
The Palace commented on how the wedding cake will draw on an autumnal theme, much like how Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding cake was inspired by spring.
The Palace confirmed in a statement: "The red velvet and chocolate cake will be a traditional cake, with a modern feel. It will incorporate the rich colours of autumn in its design and will be covered with detailed sugar work including ivy."
Sophie told the Palace: "I am incredibly excited to be given this wonderful opportunity to create such a special and unique cake. It has been lovely working with Princess Eugenie and Jack and I really hope they enjoy the cake on the day."
