I like Andrew and Sarah's wedding cake the best. It was simple and elegant. Nice decorative touches but not too wacky (which is good for a royal wedding IMO). It looked really good too! I think Maxima and WA's wedding cake is alright until you get to the ribbon-looking thingy at the top. It's not asthetically pleasing and doesn't accent the cake nicely. I'm sure it was good though! :)

Do the engaged couple get to choose what kind of wedding cake they have? Such as the flavor of the cake and it's decorations. Or is it up to the sovereign?

I'm posting some pictures so you can see fondant in action.
Lollies!

Great picture!
Previously planned or completely spontaneous, I don't know. But was definitely a great idea to cut the cake like this!

Not that pretty though.
That's what I thought, too. It actually does not even look like a cake. Interesting thing.

This is the impressive wedding cake of Donna Lavinia, dei Principi Borromeo, and John Philip Elkann. It reproduces the Lingotto (the famous building on the "Via Niza", in Turim, where once was placed the huge car factory of Fiat, company owned by the groom) and the unicorn (the heraldic symbol of the Borromeo clan):

The red round thing that we see in each of the four levels are the arms of the Spanish Royal House, also made in coloured chocolate. The cake was made by 13 people, under the orders of Oriol Mardem.
This large wedding cake however was just for decoration and to be cut by the couple. To each of the guests it was served a small individual replica...

Here's the wedding cake of Infanta Elena and Jaime de Marichalar. It was made by 8 employees of Embassy (a famous pastry shop found in 1931), following the instructions given by the Infanta herself. It was made of merengue and wild berries. This large wedding cake however was just made to be cut by the couple; to each of the guests it was served a small individual pie.
