The Duke and Duchess of Sussex looked absolutely fabulous, right from Meghan Markle's wedding dress to her jewelry. But, we eagerly waited for a little glimpse of the much-talked about royal wedding cake. The Kensington Palace had earlier tweeted a short video of the chef Claire Ptak talking about the elderflower-flavoured cake. Our wait ended when the official page of The Kensington Palace shared the picture of the gorgeous cake at the venue. The tweet said, "The wedding cake is to be served at the Reception. It was designed by Claire Ptak and features elderflower syrup made at The Queen's residence in Sandringham from the estate's own elderflower trees, as well as a light sponge cake uniquely formulated for the couple." Have a look at the wedding cake, which will be served to guests at the reception:

This was the first time a royal wedding cake will be flavoured with lemons and elderflower. It was Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's idea to get a cake made from seasonal flavours instead of having a fruit cake at the wedding reception.
A filling made from Amalfi lemon curd and elderflower buttercream ties all the elements together. The cake is decorated with Swiss meringue buttercream and 150 fresh flowers, mainly British, and in season, including peonies and roses. #RoyalWedding— Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) May 19, 2018
