The message continued: “To celebrate The Queen's birthday we are sharing a chocolate cupcake recipe from The Royal Pastry Chefs.
“If you or a loved one are celebrating a special occasion during isolation why not treat yourself to some #RoyalBakes,” the captioned read.
Enthusiastic fans and avid bakers were quick to take to Instagram to comment on the recipe, with one person writing: “Beautiful! Almost too beautiful to eat... almost…”
Another person added: “Thank you! It’s absolutely wonderful that you share your yummie secrets with us.”
A third person added: “Happy, Happy Birthday with lots of love and health and wellbeing.”
The royal treat comes after Her Majesty issued a heartfelt statement regarding the recent mass shooting in Nova Scotia, which killed 19 people over the weekend.
“Prince Philip and I have been deeply saddened by the appalling events in Nova Scotia, and we send our condolences to the families, friends and colleagues of those who have lost their lives,” the Queen began.
“I also pay tribute to the bravery and sacrifice of the officers from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and other police services who selflessly responded to these devastating attacks, and to the emergency services who are supporting those who have been injured and affected.
“My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Nova Scotia and all Canadians at this tragic time,” she concluded.
