For the Royal Wedding, bridegroom HRH Prince William has commissioned a Groom's Cake, and it's far more interesting than the *ack* fruit cake with white icing that is to be the official wedding cake! The Groom's Cake, (the recipe until recently a Palace secret), is known as Chocolate Biscuit Cake – though not a cake in the way we would think. It's essentially a chilled chocolate-butter mousse speckled with crushed cookies, then glazed in chocolate.


Of course none of us commoners can taste the pleasure of the actual cake the royal couple and their guests get to enjoy on that special day, but we can certainly make sure we smell like it! A sugar cookie base is piled with layers of deep dark fudge-y chocolate laced with sweet amber and topped with lavish cocoa butter. This is an absolute no-holds-barred CHOCOLATE scent fit for a...a prince and his bride (and all us chocoholics too!).


Residents of Merrie Ole adore the cookie-covered concoction, which according to Princess Diana's former chef Darren McGrady is the Queen's favorite sweet and was always requested for Sunday tea when William visited her while a student at Eton. The recipe can be found in McGrady's cookbook Eating Royally.


CHOCOLATE/COCOA ~ Lightens emotions, evokes feelings of love.
EGG ~ A representation of the world or the womb. Fertility, nourishment, cycle of life, feminine energy. 
BUTTER~ Nurturing, soothing, eases troubled relationships. Goddess energy.
SUGAR ~ Attracts love, luck, sweetness and riches. Lust inducing.
VANILLA ~ Aphrodisiac, inspires happiness, playfulness, sexual arousal, lust, vitalizing.
AMBER ~ Fertility, creativity, love, luck, riches
