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.
Princess Anne and Captain Mark Phillips
November 14, 1973
King Constantine II and Princess Anne-Marie
September 18, 1964
Prince George, Duke of Kent and Princess Marina of Greece and Denmark
November 29, 1934
The wedding cake stood 9 feet high and weighed 800 pounds. Four-tiered cake and the tiers were supported by little Grecian-style pillars in honor of the bride's nationality.
Prince Albert, later King George VI of England and Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon
April 26, 1923
Prince Haakon and Mette-Marit Tjessem-Hoiby
August 25, 2001
Prince Willem-Alexander and Maxima Zorreguieta
February 2, 2002
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).
Wow...Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia's cake is certainly unique.
Not that pretty though.
Prince Emanuele Filiberto and Clotilde Courau
