A little snippet from our local paper, which just happens to be full of wedding day snippets, along with many full page coverages.
"17,000 Rich Tea biscuits were used in Prince William's wedding crunch cake. The British biscuit company McVites, who made William's favourite cake, also made the Queen Mother's wedding cake."
Somehow I don't think this was the eight tier official wedding cake, more likely the groom's cake.
I've heard of such things, (groom's cakes) but don't know anyone who has had one.
At weddings I've attended (all three of them)there has only been one cake.
When, where, why did this two cake thing originate?
And where can I get the recipe for this Rich Tea biscuit cake?
Because I quite like those Rich Tea biscuits.
