Now THIS is a fruit cake
I'm not a royalist - my main reason for favouring a royal family is that it prevents us, as a nation, doing something really stupid like electing Boris Johnson or Katie 'Jordan' Price President. However, I've seen a few American commentaries online reacting unfavourably to the fact that this year's royal wedding cake is likely to be a fruit cake, illustrated not with a traditional wedding cake but with a photo of some poor offering with a crate of candied fruit wedged on top. To put matters straight, here is a royal wedding cake of the past, made by Huntley and Palmer's for the marriage of the Duke and Duchess of Kent in 1934. Sadly the picture I have is not incredibly clear, but I'd estimate the cake is a couple of feet tall at least, topped with a bouquet of flowers and figurines, with little roundels depicting what I think are landscapes on the sides of the tiers.
Now this is a fruit cake!
