Cheers to William and Katie

I remember watching Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s wedding.  Mostly because it was on early, it was summer vacation, and it was my birthday (I’m not telling what year).  A royal wedding is certainly historical and my daughter and son have started asking about “real” princes and princesses.  So I’m taping the pomp and circumstance and we’ll watch a bit.


In the past few days I’ve seen a few articles speculating about Prince William’s special dessert, which will reportedly be served along with the wedding cake.  Who knows if this is true or not.  But it sounds yummy and easy, so I’ll be making one for the occassion tomorrow, and my own royal family can celebrate.  Here’s a recipe for the biscuit cake from New York City’s,  Tea and Sympathy.
