Kate's intricately ornate cake was more incredible than I could even imagine. The Fiona Cairns creation took five weeks to make and had eight tiers, each incorporating the sweetest little details, including - ivy leaves along the cake's base symbolizing marriage/daisies symbolizing innocence, and the bridal rose symbolizing happiness on the bottom three tiers/garlands and lattice work to reflect the architectural details in the room on the fifth tier/the couples' initials intertwined on the sixth tier/and a showcasing of the four flowers of the home nations - the English rose, the Scottish thistle, the Welsh daffodil and the Irish shamrock on the seventh tier. The cake was topped by a heather and the end result was magnificent.
William's chocolate biscuit cake, covered in chocolate lotus flowers was done by McVities Cake Company and made from a Royal Family recipe. Yum.
