Royal wedding: Fans choose Kate and William's wedding cake
Sure, some lucky British pastry whiz will likely craft Kate Middleton and Prince William's dessert masterpiece for their April 29 nuptials -- but the folks at Betty Crocker and the voting public had their fun too.
The chefs over in Betty's kitchen created four cakes for the couple's happy day, based on the bridal staples of something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.
Fun facts to know and tell: The color blue, in the wedding tradition, is said to signify love and loyalty. Kate has the color in spades, including her engagement stone (once worn by William's mother, Princess Diana) and the famous Issa dress she wore to announce her and William's engagement.
"With Will and Kate bringing a fresh approach to both their wedding and the monarchy, we feel it couldn’t be more fitting for this king and queen in the making," Crocker honcho Cheryl Welch said.
