Calling all royal wedding fans! This lemon elderflower cake for Prince Harry’s and Meghan Markle’s Wedding Cake is the hottest cake in town! It is light and airy, with English flair in a dense but gorgeous lemon cake with Elderflower buttercream frosting!
It’s been 7 years since the last royal wedding. It’s been 7 years of preparation for Prince Harry’s and Meghan Markle’s big day. Our day has come party people, this is what we have prepared for and let’s get ready to celebrate!
I’m a self proclaimed (American) Royalist. For the last royal wedding, back when I started this wee blog, I did a countdown for Will and Kate’s big day. Now, I can say I am equally ecstatic and thrilled to celebrate the upcoming nuptials of Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle. As soon as the engagement was announced, I binged Suits. Ben and I were in London when the news broke that the two were dating. It was big oooo’s and ahhh’s from me. If I had a spirit animal city, it would be London.
Following all the blogs, Instagrams and clicking on any possible link to articles that even mention the wedding (you’re welcome ad companies!!), I am in it to win it and be a part of this day in some way. So when it was announced who would be making the cake and what the couple’s cake selection would be, I had to make it for myself – AND YOU!
I can tell you that every bite will be heavenly! Never having had St. Germain before, it is the perfect light and floral flavor that compliments the lemon cake superbly. It’s not overpowering, just kissing you. Like Harry will kiss his bride… awwww, eyeroll. But Awwww! The elderflower frosting is light and airy, and the elderflower is a lovely pairing.
Okay. I’m done with the schmoopy comparisons. But you can BET I am staying awake all night like I did with Will and Kate’s. I’m making this cake. I’m drinking my tea, and I am going to be cheering them on. When Ben and I went to London we went to Windsor Castle on a day trip and it was the highlight of our London adventure.
I can’t wait to celebrate the day and reminisce about the memories I have with my own husband on the grounds of Windsor and wish that the day is perfect for the new couple. So be sure to make your own memories and be part of the Royal Wedding, with this Lemon Elderflower Cake just like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle!!
