A Royal Fruitcake

Fruit cake as wedding cake? A royal tradition! Our monarchical rulers have celebrated milestone events with a time honored tradition of including fruit cake as the main dessert. Cutting the cake had a whole new meaning once upon a time and recently played a large role in the Duke and Duchess’ wedding in England. Originally made with brandy, the alcohol preserves the fruit well, making it the best option for cake prior to long standing cooling methods, (like our modern day refrigerators). To respect their relatives’ cultural practices, William and Kate debuted this flavored cake on their big day, with months of preparation to get just the right tang and texture.

CCE respects the cultures of our clients and their destinations’ practices, therefore, we’ll work closely with a local caterer in presenting a fruit cake at our couples’ upcoming Tuscany wedding. Keeping with European tradition and baking expertise, we anticipate a epic display for wedding guests!

With style,
