Great pictures guys!

My favorite cake is Princess Noor's and Prince Hamzah's. I liked both of them, but my very favorite is the first one. It's very pretty simple and elegant. It looks like something that I would choose for my own wedding.

I would really appreciate if someone could find and post pics from the Royal Family weddings in Belgium--Philippe and Mathilde, Laurent and Claire, Astrid and Lorenz, Paola and Albert and Fabiola and Baudouin.
Also, any others will be very much appreciated as well.

Thanks in advance

My favourite is Elizabeth II's.
I wonder if they managed to cut such a heavily decorated cake without destroying it. I read they used Philip's sword: perhaps this added more problems.

Humera, explained about the two receptions very well at another thread. Here I will attach it to this post, so you can understand.

Here is her reply:

Quote:
well so did princess noor and many other members of the royal family. I don't if it is the same in the Middle East, but in Pakistan, for example, after the wedding reception, there's another reception called the "Valimah" That's also an islamic tradition. The Valimah is given the next day or couple of days after the wedding by the groom's family. And so Pakistani brides, too, get to wear everything (dress, shoes, jewels etc) and so do the friends and family of the bride and groom. Im sure Rania didn't wear two dresses to waste money.

What about the fillings or flavors of the cakes? I rarely hear anything about those, if any at all. Anyone have any information?

Well, most of those ornately decorated British royal wedding cakes would have been a heavy fruit cake (which isn't the same as American fruit cake because it doesn't have all that candied melon and pineapple and other assorted sweet stuff in it - maybe a few candied cherries for colour, but that's about it; mostly it's currants, sultanas, raisins, and sliced almonds) covered with marzipan and royal icing (made of powdered sugar and egg white). Cakes like that have a shelf life of months to years, so the bakers and pastry chefs can take weeks or months decorating them. For cakes like the one described for Felipe and Letizia, which are made of perishable ingredients, the decoration has to be something that can be done quickly, which accounts for the relatively plain appearance. I think the Earl and Countess of Wessex had a cake with a fairly short shelf-life (it was chocolate or something) and again the decoration was rather plain by comparison with other British wedding cakes. This sort of cake is becoming more popular these days; it would have been unusual a few years ago but nowadays a more dessert-like cake made with chocolate or fruit mousses and decorated with fresh flowers or something else rather simple is much more common.

She was six months pregnant at the time of her wedding.

Thanks, Pdas! I never happened to see any photo of their wedding cake and I was rather curious about it! :)
Is it me, or the cake was... small... considering so many guests attended the reception?

Felipe and Letizia's cake blew me away! That was truly a very unique cake. I like Edward and Sophie's wedding cake.

Clotilde's cake really does look like it's covered in spinach. Well, she was eating for two and spinach is healthy for mother's-to-be:)

i like prince felipe and princess letizia's cake coz not only does it look good to the eye but probably also to the palette. reminds me of cakes that i see in pastry competitions on tv. the other cakes like queen elizabeth II and prince philip's cake look too delicate to eat. at these royal weddings, do they actually cut the cake after the groom and bride cuts the first slice, or is it that they serve smaller versions of the cake to their guests?

300 lb is about 140 kilos. And 9 feet is nearly 3 meters.
