43 degrees, so much rain
That's What I Like, Bruno Mars
It’s official: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have great taste. Not that this comes as a surprise to, well, anyone. When I caught wind of their unconventional wedding cake choice of lemon and Elderflower, as opposed to traditional fruit cake, I was completely won over. Elderflower is one of my favorite flavors, and when paired with lemon, it becomes delicate, understated perfection.
When I was very young, I was a patient at the City of Hope hospital in California. Once, Queen Elizabeth came to pay a visit to the patients there. I was so eager to meet the Queen that I practiced my curtsy over and over for days. I’ve had a fascination with the Royal Family ever since. To celebrate this Saturday’s Royal Wedding in style here in Alaska, I’ve developed a pretty little lemon loaf cake with elderflower glaze. It’s much simpler to make than an extravagant wedding cake, but it still has a touch of sophistication and a dash of whimsy.
