egan Markle and Prince Harry opted for a non-traditional rich fruity wedding cake and instead had a light, organic lemon and elderflower cake, reflecting the couple’s interest in seasonal ingredients, sustainability, provenance and flavour.
Elderflowers are only in season for a very short time each year (usually the end of May to the beginning of July) and the arrival of the creamy, frothy blossoms in the hedgerow traditionally marks the beginning of summer.
Whether you have a wedding to bake for or simply want to make a summery, sweet treat, these delicious elderflower and lemon inspired bakes from Belvoir Fruit Farms are worth celebrating themselves. l Visit www.belvoirfruitfarms. co.uk
