As one might expect, a lot has gone into the preparations for the royal wedding scheduled to take place on May 19. And this also includes the wedding cake. 

The wedding cake flavor

The couple chose pastry chef Claire Ptak, who owns Violet Bakery, as their official wedding baker. It's very likely that this was Meghan's choice, as she once interviewed Ptak for her now-defunct lifestyle blog, The Tig.

From the description of the cake, it's pretty clear that wedding guests are in for a delicious treat. Harry and Meghan chose a lemon elderflower cake that will feature the "bright flavors of spring," a royal family statement revealed. 

It will be covered with buttercream and decorated with fresh flowers.

In response to the announcement, Ptak shared an Instagram post expressing her excitement.

That's a lot of lemons

We certainly cannot bake a lemon elderflower cake without lemons.

Ptak recently posted an Instagram picture that featured one of the most important ingredients of the cake. She simply captioned the photo with the words, "And so it begins."

In the social media image, fans can see six crates of Sicilian lemons that were delivered by Natoora, a fruit merchant based in East London. 

Ptak's followers were thrilled with this sneak peek. "So exciting," one commenter said, with another adding, "I cannot wait to see the end result."

The floral arrangement is being prepared as well

The flowers to be used for the wedding are apparently being set up too. In a photo shared by Daily Mail, a large order of flowers was seen leaving the shop of the royal wedding florist Philippa Craddock. The gorgeous display included large bunches of roses and blossoms.

Seasonal plants will be used, and the design will reflect the "wild and natural landscapes."

Everything is already shaping up, and we cannot wait to see the final results.
