ROYAL GROOM’S CAKE?
The details were released this weekend about the Royal wedding cake and it looks like Prince William is having himself a groom’s cake!
Most people associate groom’s cakes with the American South and my prediction is that the Prince himself may have just made this a world-wide phenom! Nice goin’ P Willie!
The chocolate biscuit cake, made from a royal family recipe was requested by William. It will be made by McVitie’s Cake Company, familiar to generations of British children for their tasty chocolate covered biscuits and other treats. The company has made made cakes for the royal family for decades, including the official cake for the 50th wedding anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip.
Paul Courtney, the firm’s cake designer, said the cake will have dark chocolate, broken up tea biscuits, and some secret ingredients.
“When Prince William was a young boy he would have it for tea and really enjoyed it,” he said.
