Here it is, THE cake. With just hours to go until the Royal Wedding, the Royal Family has shared some behind the scenes images of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding cake being prepared and very nice it looks, too.

The lemon and elderflower creation is the work of master baker, Claire Ptak, who explains in a short video shared on Twitter and Instagram, that she has been baking and icing in the kitchens of Buckingham Palace as she works to finish her most famous creation to date.
🎥 Watch as baker Claire Ptak begins work on the #RoyalWedding Cake! Working in the Kitchen at Buckingham Palace, Claire and her team have started to create the three cakes ready for the wedding of Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle. The cake is a lemon sponge, with an elderflower syrup, featuring Amalfi lemon curd and covered with a Swiss Meringue elderflower buttercream. The finishing touches will applied on Saturday morning at Windsor Castle.
We get to see the Swiss meringue being layered into the cake and watch the different tiers being iced but this isn't the finished product. The fresh flowers that will add a very special touch to the cake can't be added until the whole thing reaches Windsor Castle to be assembled. That's a job for tomorrow. For now, let's just drool over cake.
