Prince William’s Wedding Cake is Made of Cookies

Prince Williams Wedding CakePrince William and fiancée Kate Middleton have lined up a very traditional royal wedding, except for their wedding cake which is inspired by an all-American celebration. Prince William, who is known for having a knack for sweets, requested a groom’s cake (a tradition in the southern part of the United States) made of chocolate and cookies.

The groom’s cake will be served along with the classic wedding fruit cake. Prince William’s cake will be prepared by British cookie masters McVitie’s. Sources said that they will use a recipe coming straight from the royal kitchen. Paul Courtney, head chef of McVitie’s, said that the cake will be made up of 1,700 Rich Tea cookies, and 17 kilos of chocolate. He further said that that the cookies will be covered by beautiful chocolate decorations.

On the other side, wife-to-be Kate Middleton will look over the details of their official wedding cake – traditional fruit cake. World-renowned cake designer Fiona Cairns will make the gigantic multi-tiered cake with white floral and cream decorations.

Cairns said that Middleton contributed ideas on how she wants her wedding cake to look. Traditional with a modern hint as Cairns would describe it. Kate personally requested the handmade decorations that reflect the Buckingham Palace. The overall theme of the cake, however, is floral and each flower has a special meaning.

10 people are currently working on the huge multi-tiered cake with handmade decorations. They simply had to make sure that it is more than enough to cater for the couple’s long list of guests.
