A Royal Dessert: Will & Kate's Biscuit-Filled Wedding Cake

A Royal Dessert: Will & Kate's Biscuit-Filled Wedding Cake

It was announced this week that Prince William and Kate Middleton will serve a cake made with somewhat humble origins at their upcoming wedding. The concept is based on one of Will's favorite childhood treats. And the cake will be served frozen!

The Guardian UK reports that this special cake, known as a "chocolate biscuit cake," will debut at the April 29th royal nuptials. It will be served alongside the traditional cake, as a groom's cake, and the ingredients will include crushed biscuits known as rich tea biscuits. The tea biscuits are ground together with "dark chocolate, condensed milk, a bit of butter, some nuts, raisins and some optional glace cherries." Sounds good to me!

The main wedding cake, according to British tradition, will be a multi-tiered fruit cake. I know which cake I'd want to try first!
