William and Kate get his ‘n’ hers wedding cakes


Well will this be the first of many wedding fashions which will follow after the Royal nuptials in April?  The Times reported on Sunday (yes I am a day late – I usually get to read the Sunday papers some time on a Monday evening!) that Kate and William will each have their own choice of cake for their wedding.  Now this is not a new idea by any stretch but not something that we see an awful lot – but perhaps during latter part of 2011 and into 2012 brides and grooms will follow suit and cake designers will be asked to produce two different cakes for weddings – great business for them!
The official wedding cake chosen by Kate is reported to be a multi-tiered traditional fruit cake in white and ivory and is being embelished with lots of handmade sugarpaste flowers to incorporate some ideas which Kate has had and is being made by cake designer Fiona Cairns. 
William on the other hand has requested McVities make him a cake based on a childhood love for Rich Tea biscuits – can’t wait to see how that turns out – how different.
We would love to hear your ideas for his and her wedding cakes – maybe traditional vs cupcakes or fruit vs chocolate or something decedent.  What about real cheese cake vs something ultra sweet.  Let us know if you have had this at your wedding.
