Baker Claire, meanwhile, has spoken out of her excitement at being part of such a special occasion. She said: "It is yet another great honour to be chosen to make such an important cake for an iconic British brand. Sainsbury's pioneered the sale of butter in this country along with milk, eggs and crème fraiche. These are all ingredients that we take for granted today but that we could not bake without."

The baker and her team of six bakers spent five days working in the kitchens at Buckingham Palace to produce the special cake, using seasonal and locally sourced ingredients, including a cordial made using elderflower from the Queen's Sandringham Estate. Some 200 Amalfi lemons were used in the recipe, as well as ten bottles of Sandringham Elderflower Cordial, 20kgs of butter, 20 kgs of flour, 20kgs of sugar and 500 organic eggs from Suffolk.
