Princess Diana's Wedding Cake

Elaine Bovender


I can't attest to the authenticity of this recipe, but I can attest to the fact that this cake is absolutely wonderful! This recipe was originally featured in several magazines shortly after the marraige of Prince Charles and Diana in 1981. According to the article, there were 27 cakes featured at the reception and this was one of the recipes. I think that the official cake was the traditional fruit cake frosted with marzipan and fondant. This is a very dense and wonderfully moist and flavorful cake, very similar to the Hummingbird cake. Enjoy!
