Royal Wedding cake designers interviewed and Queen Mother's Cake

Happy Wordless Wednesday to all.  Don't forget to link your own Wordless Wednesday posts in the linky below.  There's only a few days left to enter my latest giveaway of The Fearless Baker.  Don't miss out, go enter.

I have three videos for you today, including silent footage of the Queen Mother's wedding cake and the crowds which came to see it.  The first two videos show sneak peeks at the two royal wedding cakes for Prince William and Miss Catherine Middleton, and includes interviews with the cake designers at both McVittie's and Fiona Cairns, Inc.

Paul Courtney, Head Chef, Cake Design and Development at McVitie's, talks about the Royal Wedding reception cake, requested by Prince William.

Cake designer Fiona Cairns has been chosen to make the cake for the wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton. Decorated using the Joseph Lambeth technique, the cake will be a traditional fruit cake of many tiers.
