Prince William and fiancé Kate Middleton proved that they are determined to go against Royal tradition and declined to use their long time family wedding cake designers from Andrew Davidson’s bakery. The Andrew Davidson Bakery has baked big wedding cakes for the Royal family for nearly forty years, including all four of the Queen’s children, up until now.
On a side note, did you know that the Royal family doesn’t have to bother with wedding cake prices? Andrew Davidson’s students, who took six weeks to bake Charles and Diana’s wedding cake, did so for free. The five-tiered towering wedding cake was one of 23 cakes chosen from various wedding cake bakeries for their wedding, all of which were created free of charge.
The reason the couple declined to use the traditional bakery is due to the fact that Kate is taking a hands on approach to planning her wedding, and intends to put her own unique stamp on it instead of using Buckingham Palace courtiers. In fact, it’s been rumored that the couple has been using this approach in all aspects of their wedding, including the design of her wedding gown.
Regardless of which cake designer Prince William and Kate Middleton choose, I don’t doubt that it will be absolutely stunning and representative of their unique style and taste.
