Leicestershire-based cake designer Fiona Cairns has just secured the commission of a lifetime, after she was selected to create Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding cake.

With just five weeks until the wedding of the year, the royal couple have decided on a multi-tiered traditional fruitcake decorated with cream and white icing, Clarence House announced on Sunday.

The cake, a traditional choice by the modern couple, will also be detailed with a strong British floral theme using elements of the Joseph Lambeth technique, which involves intricate piping to create 3-D scrollwork, leaves and flowers.

In addition to the detailed wedding cake, Prince William has requested a chocolate-biscuit cake be created for the reception at Buckingham Palace, to be made from a royal family recipe.

Fiona's cake business began on her kitchen table 25 years ago and is now based in a state-of-the-art bakery in the English countryside.
