We won't know until April 29th what type of cake Kate Middleton and Prince William will serve at their wedding, but based on the confections that have been on display at royal weddings of the past it looks like we certainly can expect to see a work of art.

Clockwise from top left: Wedding cake from Phillip Mountbatten and Princess Elizabeth Alexandra Mary's (later Queen Elizabeth II) 1947 wedding—the 4-tier cake was created by British snack food company McVities & Price and measured 9 feet high and weighed 500 pounds. Wedding cake from Prince Charles and Diana Spencer's 1981 wedding. Wedding cake from Prince Rainer III and Grace Kelly's 1956 wedding.
