Princes, princesses and royal weddings. Sounds like a fairy tale, but one of the most anticipated events is less than a month away. While we don’t know what designer gown Kate Middleton will wear, sources say the creator of the royal wedding cake is Fiona Cairns Ltd. The multi-tiered traditional fruit cake will be decorated with cream and white icing, and a British floral theme using the Joseph Lambeth technique. Fiona Cairns began baking miniature cakes at her home in 1985 before opening a bakery now based in Leicestershire. She is known for quality ingredients and luxurious cakes. Check out her website for inspiration; Fiona and her team are master bakers with an eye for exceptional detail.
The McVitie’s Cake Company also confirmed that it will make a chocolate biscuit cake for the royal wedding reception. McVitie’s – now part of the United Biscuits Group – has made many of the cakes for weddings and christening of member of the royal family since the marriage of His Majesty King George V to HM Queen Mary. They also made the official anniversary cake for The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh’s 60th wedding anniversary in 2007, according to a press release. Just love the idea of honoring family tradition!
