Love Cake May 2018 round up

From royal wedding inspired cakes to seasonal ingredients we have a lovely selection of cakes this month. Let's see what everyone has been baking.
A kitchen cupboard clearout and a seasonal find in the garden inspired Kate at the Gluten Free Alchemist in her retro flavoured gluten free Rhubarb and Custard Layer Cake with Pistachio Sponge. A nutty flavoured sponge cake filled with traditional custard and a homemade rhubarb compote.
Another kitchen cupboard declutter unearthed a packet of poppy seeds for Caroline Makes.... With neighbours invited round for a visit she paired them with lemon for a classic cake combination. A lemon icing glaze on top finished it off.
Why have one cake when you can bake two in one go? This is a question answered by Choclette of Tin and Thyme. She has spent years perfecting flavours and recipes and this has resulted in her Double Delight Bundt Cake – Chocolate Rum and Raisin and Coconut and Lime. When baked in a bundt tin the look of the cake complements the flavours perfectly.
The first of my bakes has a healthy twist to it. The No added sugar tea loaf is also fatless with all the sweetness and moistness coming from the soaked dried fruit.
As a contrast I paid tribute to the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle with my own take on their wedding cake. This elderflower and lemon cake has two layers of lemon cake both filled with elderflower infused lemon curd. It is then smothered in elderflower flavoured buttercream.

Thank you to everyone who had joined in this month. I'll be back in a couple of days with June's link up.
