Royal Wedding Cake Announced!!
Sunday, March 27, 2011
With the rest of the news being so stressful, a fun high note for the day is that Prince William and his bride Kate have chosen their wedding cake.
And to my delight, the wedding cake will be a traditional English Fruitcake. What joyous news! I am a Fruitcake lover! My Mother bakes a Christmas Fruitcake with candied fruit and walnuts!
During the Christmas Season, our dear Sparkfriend, the Beautiful SLIMTHICK2 from Trinadad in the Caribbean bakes Holiday Fruitcakes for order.
We exchanged holiday greetings in early December and she was busy baking her cakes. She wanted to know what type of fruitcake I was accustomed to and shared with me, " ... in Trinidad it's a must for Christmas, ours is almost black with plenty of fruit, rum and wine."
She will be tickled to hear that the fruit in the royal wedding cake will be soaked in Bourbon, the cake will be iced with a traditional cream and white frosting and decorated to represent the different regions in the United Kingdom with fondant flowers, shamrocks and English roses.
Have a great Sunday!
