Royal wedding inspired bundt cakes
There’s so much hype around the Royal Wedding taking place this Saturday, especially around the choice of wedding cake; elderflower and lemon. Personally I adore the flavour of elderflower and often find myself buying drinks and sweet treats with elderflower in them. Around Christmas time a local gin distillery called Fourfolk Gin came to trade at the Knarsborough market, their gins are gorgeous and in particular I loved their elderflower gin, so I took a little bottle home to treat myself.
Remembering I still have some of this lovely gin left, I decided to create some bundt cakes inspired by the royal wedding cake flavours. These bundt cakes are made with lemon sponge, drizzled with a simple syrup made from elderflower gin, lemon juice and dried elderflowers which were later strained to leave a smooth syrup. The glaze is lemon with a hint of elderflower gin, the cakes are then sprinkled with dried elderflowers.
We’re a little late to the party, but in order to celebrate the Royal Wedding we’ve added these elderflower gin and lemon bundt cakes to the occasion packages on our online shop. Take a look here to celebrate in style this weekend with your very own box of bundt cakes!
