Prince William and bride-to-be Kate Middleton's wedding may be full of all the pomp and ceremony of a traditional British state occasion, but when it comes to their wedding cake they've taken their inspiration from the United States.
Sweet-toothed Prince William has personally requested a "groom's cake" made of cookies and chocolate to be served alongside the couple's official wedding cake. The groom's cake is a wedding tradition associated with the southern United States.
Guests at the Buckingham Palace reception on April 29 will be able to choose between the "chocolate biscuit cake," as it is commonly known in the UK, and a classic fruitcake.
