Kate and William wowed their royal wedding guests with a magnificent creation by the renowned Fiona Cairns — 17 individual fruit cakes decorated in elegant scroll work and piping!

Kate Middleton and Prince William‘s spectacular wedding cake took Fiona Cairns five weeks to design — and Kate had definite ideas on what she wanted for her historic day!

Fiona’s fruit cakes are a sought-after English treat — Paul McCartney makes sure he gets one every Christmas — and the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are among her biggest fans.

The eight-tiered wedding cake, decorated in cream, white icing and 900 delicate sugar-paste flowers, was a stunning centerpiece to the Buckingham Palace 650-guest reception hosted by William’s grandmother Queen Elizabeth II.

“Catherine did not want it to be seven feet tall, she didn’t want it to be towering and thin, and I think we succeeded,” Fiona tells AFP, adding that the princess bride loved the intricate piping and the three-dimensional scroll work, leaves and flowers.

“I could not believe I finished it in time but we were all really pleased with it,” she says. “I worked at the palace for two days before the wedding, setting it up with my team. The hardest part was transporting the cakes from Leicestershire to the palace.”
