The Queen has put on a banquet in honour of the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in Buckingham Palace for around 650 guests. Here’s a peek of the 10,000+ canapés served for the occasion. For a sweet ending (as with all fairytale weddings), Kate and Will sliced into an eight-tiered traditional fruit cake adorned with 900 iced flowers, designed by top baker Fiona Cairns. A chocolate biscuit cake was also served as the ‘groom’s cake’, specially requested by the sweet-toothed prince.

After all the weight loss leading up to the wedding, I certainly hope Kate stuffed her face full of fancy canapés!

Is it bad that all I was really looking forward to was the food at the wedding? 🙂

The cake seems to be really royal and rich. Blended with the perfect color combination, perfect!

Will’s cake looks so much more delicious than the wedding cake! I would face-plant into it! 😀

I don’t even know what some of those words mean… Guess that’s a good thing? The cake does look stunning though 🙂
