Royal Wedding Cake Revealed: William and Kate's Wedding Fruitcake
The Royal Wedding Cake for the Wedding of 2011 Has Been Revealed to be a Fruitcake!
For those of us who always hated eating fruitcake at Christmas, will now either be delighted or saddened to know that Prince William and Kate Middleton have chosen a traditional English fruitcake for their big day.
According to the Telegraph, the cake will be a multi-layered fruitcake with a floral design, but there will also be a McVities chocolate biscuit cake, which Prince William loved as a boy.
The official royal wedding baker, Fiona Cairna, definitely has a job on her hands making sure that the fruitcake is just right, and she says each tier will have a different theme.
The cake designer, who lives in Leicestershire, said Kate made her feel relaxed when they met around six weeks ago at Clarence House to discuss ideas.
She added: "She has guided us right from the beginning and has quite strong ideas.
"That makes it much easier than a bride who has absolutely no idea whatsoever, which has happened in the past.
"But she knew very much what she wanted and she brought us mood boards and told us what influences she would like us to use on the cake."
