A traditional English fruitcake will be served at Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding
reception. However the future King of England's groom's cake is getting some global attention.
The chocolate English biscuit cake is said to be one of the prince's favorite childhood desserts.
Local chocolatier Elle Feldman showed Maria Neider how to make the no-bake confection on
Ozarks Today this morning. The recipe posted below is from Princess Diana's chef.
You can also find Elle's signature homemade lavendar marshmallows for your royal tea party at

Serves 8 commoners.
