I Royally Do – Official Chocolate Crunch Cake of the Royal Wedding!

Sliced Chocolate Crunch Cake

I’m fairly sure that I was born with an innate love of weddings.  At the age of two I had my own veil and one of my favourite games involved pretending either I was getting married, or my Barbie’s were.

Whilst I wasn’t around for the wedding of last century, that of Charles and Diana’s I did spend countless hours watching and re-watching a recording of the TV of Andrew and Fergie’s wedding.  With all this in mind, you can understand that I’m a wee-bit excited about the upcoming nuptials of HRH Prince William of Wales and Miss Catherine Middleton.

According to The Age Newspaper and Nigella Lawson the recipe below is that which will be used as the second wedding cake to be served at the royal wedding.
