The royal wedding is tomorrow, and we can hardly handle the anticipation surrounding the yet-to-be-revealed details. Here’s something to tide us over: a sneak peek at the official dessert of the whole damn event.

Kensington Palace just sent out a tweet revealing the recipe for the three-piece lemon-elderflower royal wedding cake, which is being made by Claire Ptak of East London’s Violet Bakery. Take a look:

Considering there are more than 2,000 guests expected to attend, we’re not entirely surprised at those amounts. Still, 200 lemons and 500 eggs is a lot of juicing and cracking, even for a team of six professional bakers.

The lemon sponge cake will be soaked with elderflower syrup, filled with an Amalfi lemon curd and covered with a Swiss meringue elderflower buttercream. Mmm…

The royal family Instagram also posted a behind-the-scenes video of Ms. Ptak in action:

Um, that’s the most buttercream we’ve ever seen. And according to the video, the final product will form an installation that will be assembled in-situ at Windsor Castle the day of. No stress, though.

If anything, this has just made us more determined to find our lost invitation. *Wipes drool from chin*
