Traditional fruit cake to sweeten royal wedding

London (ANTARA News/Reuters) - Britain`s Prince William and Kate Middleton have picked an ornate multi-tiered fruit cake for their wedding on April 29, royal officials said on Sunday.

The traditional cake -- which is usually made with candied or dried fruit, nuts, spices and sometimes spirits -- will be decorated with cream and white icing and will have "a strong British floral theme", Clarence House and St James`s Palace said in a statement.

The website of the chosen cake designer, Fiona Cairns, who is based in a village in central England, shows cakes decorated with three-dimensional designs of roses, leaves and birds.

Prince William has also asked McVitie`s Cake Company, now part of United Biscuits, to make a chocolate biscuit cake from a royal family recipe for the wedding reception at Buckingham Palace.

McVitie`s has made many of the wedding and christening cakes for members of the royal family since the marriage of the future King George V and Queen Mary in 1893.
