Apparently elderflower is a liquor that is popular in Europe that pairs well with citrus flavors, hence the lemon cake. 

"It has just a little sweetness. It's real nice and floral. It's like a honeysuckle kind of flower to it," said Amanda Berry, co-owner of Betty Jane's Bakeshoppe.


Berry says since the news broke about the type of cake that would be served at the royal wedding, they've had several calls requesting it.
