The cake is "decorated with Swiss meringue buttercream and 150 fresh flowers, including peonies and roses," Here's what the final version looks like:

The day before the wedding, Kensington Palace revealed the ingredients of the gorgeous cake—including (wait for it) 200 Amalfi lemons, 500 organic eggs from Suffolk, 20 kgs (or around 40 pounds) each of butter, flour, and sugar, and 10 bottles of Sandringham Elderflower Cordial.
