The cake, which was assembled in Buckingham Palace, measured around 3ft in height and had eight layers. According to one of the cake’s creators, the Queen was not happy that part of the Palace had been taken apart.
Speaking on ‘ITV’s The Day Will and Kate Got Married’, Fiona Cairns, the cake’s creator recalled her emotions on the day.
She said: “I was told that Her Majesty would be coming through the door at the top of the picture gallery to chat at midday.
“So no pressure of course, having never built this cake before.”
The magnificent wedding cake was constructed using 17 individual fruit cakes, weighed over 220 pounds and had around 900 individually iced flowers.
It was also a first for the Royal Family as it was the first cake prepared for a royal wedding to be stacked rather than use pillars for support.
It also strayed from tradition by using soft icing rather than the typical harder kind.
“When the Queen came to see us, the cake wasn’t completely finished,” said Ms Cairns.
“I can remember her saying ‘I hear that you’ve been dismantling my house.’
“I said to her, ‘well we had to take a door down from the room below for the trolley to go through with the cake.’
“It was all put back in the end so it was fine.”
It is not uncommon for newlyweds to freeze certain parts of the cake and bring them back out for special occasions. William and Kate are no exception.
The couple reportedly broke out the final tier of the cake in 2018 for Prince Louis’ christening.
