Prince William and Kate Middleton have been keeping an eye on costs ahead of their wedding– but they are sparing no expense when it comes to the cake.

The couple, who both have a sweet tooth, have chosen to have two cakes served at their wedding breakfast following their marriage at Westminster Abbey on April 29.

One will be William’s favourite chocolate biscuit cake, which is made from a special recipe involving Rich Tea biscuits and dark chocolate and is set in the freezer rather than baked in an oven.

Buckingham Palace has sent the recipe to chefs at McVitie’s, who will make an outsized version including 1,700 biscuits and nearly 40lb of chocolate.

The couple have also asked Leicestershire-based cake-designer Fiona Cairns to make a multi-tiered fruit wedding cake which will be decorated with fresh fruit and flowers.

Kate has been instrumental in creating the cake. It is thought it will incorporate the couple’s cipher, which will be released on the wedding day and is expected to be their entwined initials.

Kate has chosen pale colours for the cake and apparently wants a floral theme featuring the ¬symbols of the four nations: an English rose, a ¬Scottish thistle, a Welsh daffodil and an Irish ¬shamrock.
