Monarchy Mondays ,Cookie & Fruit Cake, The Royal Wedding Cake

It's got gray icing, I can't even begin to think how you make gray icing" - M'Lynn about the red-velvet armadillo grooms cake
It's a bleedin' Armadillo Grooms cake !

Millions, I have watched the movie "Stella Magnolias" millions of times and my favorite scene is Shelby   and Jackson wedding, the grooms cake !! Weezer cuts off the butt "nothing like a good piece of ass" I say nothing says love like a cake that looks like road kill ! So I guess Im not the only one who likes the idea of a grooms cake, along with a traditional  British Wedding fruit cake, Prince William also will have a grooms cake made out of chocolate cookies, made by Mc Vities cake company. Paul Courtney, the firms cake designer, has said "the grooms cake will have broken up pieces of tea biscuits and special secret ingredients"

The wedding cake will be made by wedding cake baker, Fiona Cairns, the cake is multi-tired traditional fruit cake, Kate Middleton is said to have help created the cake theme. The actual design remains a secret but what we do know is the cake will have a British floral theme and use the Lambeth Method, a popular English style that relies on intricate piping and scrollwork. The ingredients, dried fruits such as raisins, walnuts, and cherries, if you are a guest and allergic to nuts, you're screwed but you do have the grooms cake to the rescue. The grooms cake contains dark chocolate and biscuits type cookies, sounds much better then a fruit cake but Im american so fruit cakes is something we make fun of at Christmas, not have at a wedding.

Wedding fruit cake, sounds nasty but if it makes the couple happy then we at Urban Buddha like it !  Have a craving now for red velvet cake with sweet cream cheese frosting, yum .
