Prince William insisted on McVities rich tea biscuits in his unconventional choice of chocolate fridge wedding cake.
We’ve included William & Kate’s crowd pleasing cake as part of a dainty trio of chocolate desserts on the Crooked Billets pud’ menu – miniature chocolate mousse & white chocolate sorbet being the accompaniments. The addition of Space Dust gives my Royal refrigerator revelation a surprising twist. Space Dust or Popping Candy available from sweet shops & some supermarkets.
170g golden syrup
400g dark chocolate
120g raisins, soaked overnight in 4 tbsp dark rum
100g popping candy
Line a 25 x 20cm shallow cake tin with clingfilm. Spoon half the chocolate & biscuit mixture into the tin. Evenly sprinkle the popping candy, then spread the remaining chocolate & biscuit mixture. Smooth over & press down well. Refrigerate until set.
Slice & serve. Or for a really Royal touch, using 3 diminishing sized round round cutters, stack yourself a miniature tiered wedding cake, perhaps crowned with a little gold leaf. Try Waitrose online for the bling.
