Prince Felipe and Letizia Ortiz

May 22, 2004


The Prince of Asturias cake consists of a base of almond sponge under several colourful layers – a passion fruit crème, raspberry sauce and rice pudding mousse – symbolising the Spanish national flag.

Topping the sweet creation, a combination of symbols representing everything from the city where the nuptials took place – Madrid – to the number of children the prince and future princess might have (the Prince mentioned he wishes to have between two to five children):)

Among the decorations completing the cake is the Prince of Asturias coat of arms, the shield of the royal house, two wedding rings and a pair of blooms representing the bride and groom. And finishing off the array of symbols are four smaller flowers.

My absolute favourite is Elizabeth II´s wedding cake. Very exquisite. I also liked The Earl and Countess of Wessex´s wedding cake. The wedding cakes of Letizia/Felipe and Maxima/Willem-Alexander, on the other hand, look extremely dull (I am sure they were delicious, though).

Not that pretty though.
