Just because you’re not invited to the luncheon following the royal wedding doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it at home.

We’ve got the recipe for Prince William’s groom’s cake, the Chocolate Biscuit Cake of his childhood. It’s also said to be one of Queen Elizabeth’s favorite teatime treats.

It’s a very rich chocolate refrigerator cake, made from ganache and tea biscuits.

The recipe comes from royal chef Darren McGrady’s cookbook, Eating Royally. The book is an opportunity to see what the Royals eat and enjoy the exact same recipes served at Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, Balmoral Castle and Kensington Palace.
