We’ve been speculating about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding cake since the royals first announcement back in March—but the guessing is finally over. Kensington Palace just released a sneak peek of the dessert heard ’round the world, and it’s shaping up to completely epic.

In Guinness Book Of World Records fashion, the Palace’s Instagram story showed off the staggering amounts of each ingredient Ptak’s incorporating: 200 lemons (from the Amalfi Coast, the only kind Ptak uses at her bakery), 500 organic eggs from Suffolk, 20kg of butter, 20kg of flour, 20kg of sugar, and 10 bottles of elderflower cordial from the queen’s Sandringham estate.

The Royal Family’s Twitter account even has a video of Ptak at work. “The cake is made up of lemon sponge, it has an elderflower syrup drizzle on the sponge,” the baker explains. “It has an Amalfi lemon curd, and then it has a Swiss meringue buttercream with elderflower,” she continues. The final assembly—tier-stacking and adding fresh flowers—will take place at Windsor Castle on Saturday morning.

This is the Palace’s first official update since their initial baker and flavor announcement, but Ptak’s bakery account has been slyly Instagramming teases for the past three days.

First, she posted six carts of lemons and captioned it, “And so it begins 🍋”.

The same day, a picture of a buttercream-frosted cake adorned with fresh flowers—like Harry and Meghan’s will be—went up. Ptak and her crew didn’t say it had anything to do with the royal dessert, but followers went crazy anyway.

And, lest the people who didn’t get an invite get upset, apparently Ptak’s bakery is making cupcakes for street parties, too, as she revealed two days ago.

If you’re stateside, you’re not totally SOL. Ptak released The Violet Bakery Cookbook in 2015. There’s no lemon elderflower cake recipe in it, but there are a couple similar ones, including a lemon drizzle loaf and violet buttercream (just replace the violet syrup with an elderflower one).
