I have a confession to make. I’m obsessed with the upcoming Royal Wedding. It’s all over tv and the internet and somehow I got sucked in. So of course, one of the first questions I had about the wedding was, “What’s on the menu?” Unfortunately, that’s almost as big a secret as Kate’s dress. But I did find out that in addition to the traditional wedding fruit cake (ew), there is supposedly going to be a groom’s cake. And according to the internet, it’s a chocolate biscuit cake that was a favorite of Will’s when he was a boy. The cake consists of dark chocolate, sugar, tea biscuits and not much else. It’s rich and decadent, yet simple and homey all at the same time. I’m sure the Royal Wedding version will be much more elaborate!
For this cake, you will need some British tea biscuits. McVitie’s is the preferred brand, as they will be baking the groom’s cake. I found mine online, but you may have some luck finding other brands at the grocery store. I recommend using a high quality dark chocolate bar like Lindt or Green & Black.
