The cake was very different from all the royal wedding cakes we’ve seen before. First, multiple layers all sat on different platforms.

And second, it was not a traditional fruit cake that is popular in the United Kingdom. The dessert was decorated with buttercream frosting, and it featured 150 fresh flowers, including roses and peonies.
