However, despite the plans in place, it is unclear how much the Queen will actually be able to take part in, after she was ordered to rest by doctors in the latter part of last year.

The idea is that the dish will serve as a lasting reminder of the celebrations, alongside the Green Canopy initiative, which will plant trees to be presented to the Queen at the end of the year.

From 12 to 15 May, more than 500 horses and 1,000 performers will take part in a 90-minute show at Windsor Castle, taking the audience on a journey through history from Elizabeth I to present day.

Plans for the long bank holiday weekend On 2 June, a four-day bank holiday weekend begins- kicking off with a special Trooping The Colour on Horse Guards Parade in central London.

On the same day- the UK, along with the Isle of Man, the Channel Islands and its Overseas Territories, will all light a beacon at the same time as one at Buckingham Palace.

the next day of the bank holiday weekend- a service of thanksgiving for the queen's reign will be held in the grand surrounds of st paul's cathedral, ahead of a celeb-packed party at the palace on 4 june.

performers have yet been named, but it is billed as bringing together some of the world's biggest stars to celebrate the most significant moments from the queen's seven-decade reign.

during the festivities, sandringham and balmoral will be opened to local residents for the long weekend in june.

and during the platinum jubilee pageant, a river of hope will be paraded along the mall- made up of 200 silk flags.

School children will also be getting involved, and have been asked to create a picture for how they would like the planet to look over the next 70 years, with the best ones being put on to the flags.

The following month, July, a trio of displays to mark the occasion, as well as the Coronation and the Queen's multitude of Jubilees, will be put on at royal residences.

Finalists will be judged by an expert panel including Dame Mary Berry and Masterchef's Monica Galetti.

the winning recipe will be made available to the public and the pudding will be enjoyed at big jubilee lunches during the bank holiday weekend.

A competition to devise the perfect dessert to honour the monarch's 70-year reign is being launched today.

On 10 January the Platinum Pudding Competition starts.

So expect a lot of trifling puns.

Other events to mark the Queen's 70 years on the throne include the planting of more than 60,000 trees and the lighting of beacons in towns, villages and cities throughout the UK and in the capital cities of ­Commonwealth countries.

The competition, open for entries until February 4, is being organised by London store Fortnum & Mason and The Big Jubilee Lunch.

It's the ultimate Bake Off – the chance to whip up a new pudding to commemorate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.
