The Royal Wedding Cake (So special and yet so very familiar)

Everyone is interested in the marriage of Prince William & Kate Middleton….me? I’m interested in their wedding cake…Prince William’s favorite no bake cake. Here’s the recipe I got from KY3.com from Princess Diana’s Chef. Once you read it (especially if you’re a Malaysian), you will identify the cake quite fast!

Chocolate Biscuit Cake
Serves 8 commoners.

From Eating Royally by Darren McGrady

1/2 teaspoon soft butter
8 ounces McVities rich tea biscuits
4 ounces soft butter
1/2 cup sugar
4 ounces dark chocolate
1 egg, beaten
8 ounces dark chocolate for icing
1 ounce white chocolate for decoration

1. Line the base of a springform pan with silicone paper, and butter the sides. Break the biscuits into almond-sized pieces and set aside.

2. Cream the sugar and butter in a bowl. Melt 4 ounces dark chocolate and mix with butter, add the beaten egg and mix well. Add biscuits and coat well.

3. Pour into the pan, making sure the bottom is well covered as this will be the top of the cake when it is unmoulded. Let set in a fridge for three hours. Let partially warm outside of the fridge while 8 ounces dark chocolate and white chocolate are melted. Flip cake and drizzle chocolate on top.

Sounds Familiar????
