That’s the wedding cake! It’s eight tiers, designed by Fiona Cairns, and decorated using a style known as the “Joseph Lambeth Method”—so, it’s probably not Funfetti. There are 17 different varieties of floral motifs on it, including the white rose (the symbol of England), the daffodil (the symbol of Wales), the shamrock (the symbol of Ireland), and the thistle (the symbol of Scotland). For a look at other, many-tiered royal wedding cakes, see our survey of history’s best. As for the savory offerings that the wedding attendees are enjoying right now at Buckingham Palace, read on—we’ve taken the liberty of arranging them from least to most British-sounding.
