Lemon Elderflower Cake, Gluten Free Lemon Elderflower Cake

With so much talk about the Royal Wedding, I thought I’d share this great recipe hack with you today for Gluten Free Lemon Elderflower Cake with Lemon Buttercream Icing.

I created this lemon recipe hack for my two of daughters’ birthday cakes.  Yesterday baked it with the elderflower addition in cupcake form.  It is so good.

You may recall I love elderflower liquor and shared an elderflower cocktail recipe last spring.  If you’re not up for baking definitely make this Sparkling Elderflower cocktail to toast the newly weds Saturday.

Enjoy!
