Royal Wedding Cake Photos 2011: 8 Tiers Tall
The Royal Wedding Cake: Eight Beautiful (and Fragile) Tiers
The wedding cake served at the Royal Wedding was eight layers high. Designed by Fiona Cairns, the royal wedding cake is a waist-high affair with intricate white-on-white details. Come on, even Grace Van Cutsem must have smiled when she saw it.
We're also including photos of Fiona Cairns' crack team of cake ninjas as they detail and move the cake through Buckingham Palace, with the precision (and, probably, the nervousness) of Indiana Jones moving the idol in the opening scene of Raiders of the Lost Ark.
One presumes that Team Cake didn't choke, since no cake-disaster stories have emerged.
