The recipe for the Cambridges’ wedding cake was revealed by the Royal Collection Trust (RCT) over the weekend. The RCT, which looks after Her Majesty’s art collection and public visits to the Firm’s residences, described William and Kate’s cake as a “decadent treat” and “really easy” to make as they shared the recipe on social media.

In their post on Twitter, the RCT said: “If you’re baking at home this weekend, why not try this delicious chocolate cake recipe?

“It was one of two cakes made to celebrate the wedding of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in 2011.”

The chocolate cake in question is said to be Prince William’s “groom cake”.

The Telegraph claims the cake was a childhood favourite of the sweet-toothed Duke of Cambridge.

And according to the RCT’s recipe, wannabe Royal bakers only need six ingredients and a spare half-an-hour to serve up to eight people with a slice of cake.

To bake the cake you will need: 225g of Rich Tea biscuits, 115g of softened unsalted butter, 115g of unrefined caster sugar, a total of 240g of chopped dark chocolate, two tablespoons of warm water and 125g of whipping cream.

The chocolate cake is just one of the delicious treats served up shortly after William and Kate were pronounced husband and wife.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were also baked a Welsh wedding cake.

The Welsh dragon and Harp could be seen on the bottom two tiers of the cake.

On the top two tiers, bakers added Prince William’s crest and iced inscriptions of the couple’s initials.

But the chefs sparked a bit of confusion for those that know the Duchess as Kate.

Rather than adding ‘W’ and ‘K’ onto the cake, the chefs looped ‘W’ around a ‘C’, for Catherine.

But this has also left fans of the Firm calling for the RCT to reveal more Royal recipes in the future.

“You should repost recipes like this more often,” @AmaniScheider1 said.

And it’s fair to say those who have given it a go are more than pleased.

Prince William, now 39, and his wife Kate Middleton, also 39, tied the knot at Westminster Abbey on April 29, 2011.

Around 2,000 guests, from David Beckham to Sir Elton John, attended the ceremony and over 26million watched the wedding at its peak on the nation’s TV screens.
