Which Cake Should Will and Kate Choose?

A royal wedding will take place when Will and Kate marry. I'm not caught up in the whole affair, but the two lovebirds seem to be a good match for each other. Besides, weddings are always a beautiful thing to see and theirs will be one of fairytale dreams.

What if Will and Kate called Betty Crocker for help with the royal wedding cake? Just for fun, Betty Crocker asked theirselves that same question and came up with royal wedding cake designs inspired by the traditional British wedding saying "Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue".

Something Old
Classic, timeless, and elegant. This wedding cake takes its inspiration from a vintage chandelier – but with a modern twist. The majestic tiers, soft white color palette, gilded accents and romantic use of light make this cake gorgeous and traditional. The modern twist? With a flair for drama, this cake floats above us, suspended from the ceiling!

Something New
Fresh, surprising and novel. In this cake, the wedding dessert buffet meets the traditional British topiary. This cone-shaped tower of delightful desserts is an elegant white mosaic of our favorite sweets, from frosted sugar cookies to dainty petit fours to elegant-but-simple palmiers.

Something Borrowed
This cake borrows from a dessert trend on the rise – pie. Here, piecrust is a decorative and delicious fondant on the cake. It is also used to create accents such as birds, a traditional English wedding cake icon

Something Blue
Royal by nature, blue is the perfect color for this wedding. This design takes inspiration from the heirloom sapphire ring, as well as peacock feathers (traditionally associated with both courtship and royalty) and the feathered “fascinator” hats favored by the future Royal. Inside, this “peek-a-blue” cake features layers of Royal Blue Velvet Cake, a new spin on popular Red Velvet Cake!

Betty Crocker is having a Royal Wedding Cake Vote where you can vote on which cake is your favorite and see the results. My favorite is the Something Blue cake. According to the results when I voted, it's the one in the lead as the favorite.

I'm curious, which cake out of the four is your favorite?

I received no compensation for this post. This post is for general purposes only.

All the cakes are gorgeous, but my favorite would have to be the Something Old Cake. Now, which will the lucky couple choose...I don't know:)

Hope you're having a great day.
