You’d have to be blind not to know there’s a royal wedding due to take place in England. In a month’s time, the heir to the throne, Prince William will marry Kate Middleton in Westminster Abbey, London.
And it’s been revealed that there will not be one royal wedding cake, but two! The first is a traditional multi-tiered cake which is being provided by Leicestershire based cake designer, Fiona Cairns. The white and cream cake will represent all parts of the United Kingdom; the English rose, the Scottish thistle, the Welsh daffodil and the Irish shamrock.
The secret ingredient of the fruit cake which will add that little touch of va-va-voom is, of course, cognac.
The second cake is a throwback to Prince Williams’s childhood. UK biscuit manufacturer McVitie’s will produce a special chocolate biscuit cake using a special recipe from the kitchens of Buckingham Palace.
