A Royal-Wedding-Worthy Cake

Wedding Cake

The design of Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding cake won't be revealed until Friday, but guests can expect white icing, lots of flowers and "intricate piping."

What detail from the Royal Wedding are we most concerned about over here at Cooking Channel? We scrolled through the (96-page!) official media briefing from the palace and naturally zoned in on the few paragraphs devoted to wedding cake.

Prince William and Kate Middleton’s “official” wedding cake will be a “multi-tiered traditional fruit cake” made by British cake designer Fiona Cairns. Apparently, the bride was intimately involved in the cake design process: “Like any bride, Miss Middleton did her own research into the cake’s design and met Ms. Cairns to give her specific guidance on what she would like the cake to look like,” states the release.

Guests can expect an ornate cake with white icing and a “strong British floral theme.” Cairns will use elements of the Joseph Lambeth technique, a style that involves intricate piping of leaves, flowers and “3-D scrollwork.”

In addition to this traditional cake, Wills and Kate are having a little fun. A second cake will be a personal favorite of the groom, a chocolate confection made with McVities biscuits. The popular British cookie company was commissioned to create this cake for the couple from a Royal Family recipe.

To get a sense of all the detail involved in creating a high-profile cake, check out Cooking Channel baking guru Rachel Allen’s visit with British cake-designer-to-the-stars Mich Turner. Though she didn’t score the Royal Wedding gig, Turner did make a birthday cake for David Beckham, and he and Victoria are reportedly on wedding’s coveted guest list.
