For days, much of the world has been waiting for the Royal baby to arrive. Baby Cambridge was born today, and it’s a Prince! His name has not been revealed yet, and may not for days. Sophie is hoping for Ryland, but I’m with all those who think George is a nice name. We shall see eh?
What better way to celebrate the royal baby’s birth than with cake? Not just any cake though, we need a Chocolate Biscuit Cake.
Chocolate Biscuit Cake will not be new to any Royal Watchers. It was the cake William chose to be his Groom’s Cake. In his book, Eating Royally, Darren McGrady, former chef to Queen Elizabeth II and Princess Diana, relates that this is the Queen’s favorite tea cake. I’ve also read somewhere that she would have it served when William visited from Eton and it is his favorite too!
Here is a little video from 2011 with McVitie’s on making the cake for the Royal Wedding.
