Royal wedding cake Lemon and Elderflower (Iceland and John Lewis)

The royal wedding cake

The royal wedding cake will be lemon and elderflower.

“Kinda excited to announce this one!!” she teased in the caption. “Violet has been chosen to make the wedding cake for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. @kensingtonroyal They both share so many of the same values regarding food provenance, sustainability, seasonality and of course, flavour! Xxx”

Iceland lemon and elderflower

Butter cream and jam in middle have good tang to them of lemon and elder flower. I like the jam but, think would prefer sweeter butter cream.

The sponge is average. The cake is sold frozen and takes 12 hours to defrost, it’s best before is Jan 2019. It costs £8.

Overall I would prefer to pay a fiver for 2 or 3 Marks and Spencer’s lemon drizzles. It is pleasant to eat but, I would not save it for a special occasion although looks very presentable and as box suggests could be jazzed up further.

John Lewis

Has a version without buttercream icing instead decorated with purple flowers and pistachios.


Anyone see lemon and elderflower elsewhere.
