The Royal Couple Choose Their Wedding and Reception Cakes
Prince William and Kate Middleton have chosen their wedding and reception cakes.
PEOPLE is reporting that the royal couple have picked cake designer Fiona Cairns to create their wedding cake, which will be a multi-tiered traditional fruitcake.
Each tier of the icing-covered, brandy-flavored fruitcake will have a different theme, Cairns explained to PEOPLE. Detailed piping will be used to make the decorative touches, and flowers from the four corners of the United Kingdom will be represented on the cake.
For the reception, the couple requested a chocolate cookie cake to be made by the McVitie”s biscuit company. Prince William had specifically requested the cake, made from a recipe favored by the family. The cake had previously been used for the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh”s 60th wedding anniversary.
Cairns mentioned that she had sent samples of different fruit cakes to the royal couple to choose their favorite. She has already started baking the wedding cakes to ensure they get the necessary four weeks needed to mature in taste.
Cairns also revealed that it was Middleton who made the decisions regarding the cakes.
The cake designer met Middleton six weeks earlier. “She [Middleton] 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.”
The royal wedding is scheduled to take place on April 29, and Prince William previously hinted that the honeymoon could take place in the town of Cairns, Australia.
