Set your computer settings to delicious! Feast your eyes on the Royal Wedding cake made especially for Prince William and his new bride, Kate Middleton.

Building the eight-tiered creating was certainly no "cake walk" -- A team at Fiona Cairns Ltd. crafted the decadent dessert according to British Royal tradition (it's a fruit cake). Designed by Leicestershire-based baker Fiona Cairns, the cake is adorned with 900 iced flowers. What else did guests nosh on at the Queen's Post-Wedding luncheon?

Guests were treated to approximately 10,000 canapes that were prepared by Royal Chef Mark Flanagan and a 21-person staff. The busy crew also served some severely fancy fare: pressed duck terrine with fruit chutney, quail eggs with celery salt, cornish crab salad on lemon blini, bubble and squeak with confit shoulder of lamb, scottish langoustines with lemon mayonnaise and pressed confit of pork belly with crayfish and crackling.

One guest at the reception told Us Weekly:

"The reception was lovely. We had to hand our phones in to the cloakroom and were given them back after. Two speeches were made; one from the Prince of Wales and one from Prince William. Prince Charles's speech was just fantastic. He thanked the staff and made a toast to the Queen. He also said how proud he was of Kate and welcomed her into the family. Kate was just immaculate! She had a huge smile on her face the whole time and was just beaming."
To add to the already overflowing reception menu, a chocolate biscuit cake by McVitie's Cake Company will also be served as a groom's cake. It is said this was was specially requested by Prince William himself.

Afterward, the bride and groom went directly to St. James's Palace. They have more events during the day, and will be back at Buckingham Palace tonight. Will's father Prince Charles is hosting a dinner reception for the newlyweds (and about 300 other guests), where there's sure to be another fancy feast!

    That is interesting you peostd this, since I leave for vacation next weekend. I used to really solely on running on vacations. Seeing that I'm not really running right now, I've decided to pack my 8 lb. weights, go for daily walks/hikes, and check out the facility's workout room. Sure, they aren't the best usually, but they're bound to have something! I love to explore new places while I'm on vacation. Usually I do this through running, but I'm thinking walks will help me to better enjoy the view. :-)

    I have been surfing online more than 3 hours lately, yet I never discovered any interesting article like yours. It's lovely worth enough for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you probably did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.
