If you’re a loyal fan of the Royal family, you’re probably well aware of Queen Elizabeth the 2nd’s 70th Jubilee celebration that took place recently.
Among the many cakes that were served to celebrate the queen’s 4 day bank holiday including chocolate strawberry, biscoff, carrot and espresso martini cake, among many others, the royal family actually celebrated the queen’s Jubilee with the platinum jubilee cake that was in fact a fruit cake that took three months to design, according to mash.com.
The above-mentioned is quite ironic given that a slice of her 1947 wedding cake (which was also a fruit cake, ironically) will be auctioned on the 14th of July 2022.
Queen Elizabeth’s wedding cake was a 4-tier cake. And with ingredients sourced from all over the world, it was called the 10 000 miles cake. The cake was baked by McVitie and Price. Preserved by the then royal family’s caterer, Sir Norman Joseph, who wrapped the cake in cellophane and kept it in its original present box, this cake is said to be going up on auction for between R3864 -R7728 and will be auctioned by the Cheffin’s auction house.
Unless they’ve got a palate for 75-year-old cake, it is advised that whoever will be announced as the highest bidder on this cake should not eat it.
