The official Royal Wedding cake was a multi-tiered traditional fruitcake by British cake designer Fiona Cairns. The cake was decorated with the couple's new cipher and each tier had a different floral theme. The English rose, Scottish thistle, Welsh daffodil, and Irish shamrock were all featured, as were Sweet William, lilies of the valley, and acorns (an architectural detail featured in the Picture Gallery where the cake was displayed).
A chocolate biscuit cake was also served. A childhood favorite of Will's, the cake was made by the McVitie's biscuit company and contained 35 pounds of chocolate and 1,700 McVitie's Rich Tea biscuits. (You can get the recipe on epicurious.com.)Photo: Getty Images
