As Prince William and Kate Middleton
's wedding date (April 29th, 2011) fast approaches, speculation about the royal wedding details has hit a fever pitch!
One hot topic that everyone is buzzing about- the wedding cake
! The National Wedding Show
in London features the crème de la crème of wedding cake designers, and today, we've got the royal wedding cake take from Rachel Willow (see a sampling of her beautiful bespoke cake confections below
) of Planet Cake
Rachel predicts that Prince William and Kate will stick with tradition and choose a classic, elegant wedding cake
. It's too bad she wasn't commissioned for the job... because her concept is lovely!
Taking the Spring wedding season into account, Rachel envisions a traditional creamy white wedding cake (with a touch of green) adorned with fresh flowers and elegant pearls. The cake would feature pearlised piping and romantic lace touches
, and each wedding cake tier would hold a pearl-and-jewel-encrusted royal icon.
When it comes to flavor, Rachel asserts, "It has to be a buttery vanilla cake with a vanilla bean cream and Duchy lemon curd!
" A woman who knows what she wants. Don't you just love that?!
What do you think of Rachel's vision for the Royal Wedding Cake?
