QUEEN ELIZABETH & PRINCE PHILIP

Charles's mum and dad, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, celebrated their Nov. 20, 1947, wedding with a 9-ft. tall, four-tier cake that weighed in at a whopping 500 lbs. Crafted by McVitie and Price Ltd., the same biscuit company whipping up dessert for William and Kate's big day, the showstopper even depicted scenes from the couple's lives.
