Prince William and Catherine Middleton's Wedding Cake
The Palace released pictures of two confections Prince William and Catherine Middleton will enjoy Friday afternoon on its official Flickr page: an eight-tier wedding cake and William's favorite chocolate-cookie cake.
The wedding cake – a traditional fruitcake made by Fiona Cairns – is adorned with over 900 leaf and floral touches and is topped with the couple's new cipher.
Additionally, the cake reflects the room in which it is displayed, featuring a garland design around the middle which matches the architecture featured at the top of the Picture Gallery in Buckingham Palace.
A second treat, a chocolate biscuit cake requested by Prince William, was prepared by McVitie's Cake Company from a Royal Family recipe and will also be served.
The Queen's reception is expected to include the cutting of the wedding cake, as well as speeches celebrating the newlyweds.
