Who knew The Queen was a choco-holic?

Turns out there is a second cake being served up at this month’s Royal Wedding, much to the relief of any self-respecting Yankee who happens to be invited.

Prince William has requested a “Chocolate Biscuit Cake” as the Groom’s Cake, and it turns out it is actually a favorite of his grandmother’s…so much so that there is a standing order for it to appear on The Queen’s afternoon tea menu once a month…and she does not share the left-overs with the staff (as is her habit with virtually every other kind of cake that is served).

The recipe us available here: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Chocolate-Biscuit-Cake-364790

My friend who tracked it down for me says she expects it to be served for fika the next time she’s in Sweden. DONE DEAL.
