The Duke and Duchess of Sussex got a lemon-flavored sponge cake, soaked it in an elderflower cordial syrup (“made at The Queen’s residence in Sandringham from the estate’s own elderflower trees”), and covered it in Swiss meringue buttercream flavoured with elderflower, as per official announcements from the royal family. It was then covered in a whopping 150 fresh floras “mainly British, and in season, including peonies and roses”.

The prince especially made the request for the inclusion of Pop Rocks, which turned out to be a massive hit with guests owing to its highly interactive factor. The several cakes were comprised of rhubarb, pistachio and strawberry flavours and accentuated by colourful light, fluffy designs in the center. The overall presentation of the whole creation was incredibly astonishing!
