Kate and William’s wedding is just one week away, the royal baker has been confirmed and the world awaits to see what the dress will look like. But since our invitation to the royal wedding got lost in the post, we will unfortunately not be sampling the delicious wedding cake on the 29th.
Not to worry though, Tate & Lyle Sugars have dedicated a whole exhibition to the culinary art of wedding cakes, so that we all can get a fix of sugar before the big day!
‘Let Them Eat Cake’ offers members of the public a guide to a number of royal wedding cakes throughout history. Wander around the room at the summit of The Wellington Arch in London (just a stone throw from Buckingham Palace) and marvel at the edible artworks that copy the cakes for the likes of Henry VIII, Charles and Diana as well as a downscaled model of Queen Elizabeth 2nd’s wedding cake which stood 9ft high and weighed 500 pounds.
Tate & Lyle Sugars ‘Let Them Eat Cake’ is on at the Wellington Arch, Hyde Park Corner from 22-25 April, 10am – 5pm daily. Entrance is free. For more information see www.english-heritage.org.uk
