It’s two weeks til the Royal wedding. If like me you never received your invitation, here’s a way you too can feel like you’re at Buckingham Palace. The prince has requested this as his “Groom Cake”. It’s pretty simple, no bake and can be made in advance. Add champagne and a large, overdecorated hat and it will be like you too are hanging with Will, Kate and the Queen!!

1- 7 oz pkg butter tea bisquits

Note: You can find tea bisquits on the cookie aisle near the British cookies

1 cup heavy cream

2 tbsp honey
1/2 stick butter
16 oz bittersweet chocolate(chopped)
1 tsp vanilla

2 tbsp butter
1/4 cup heavy cream
6 oz (1 cup) bitterswwet chocolate(chopped)


Break up bisquits, DON’T turn them into crumbs-you want chunks!
Coat an 8″ or 9″ springform pan with Pam
Combine cream, honey and butter in microwave safe bowl on high for 1 1/2 minutes til bubbly
Add chocolate, stir til blended and smooth
Add vanilla and crumbled bisquits. Spoon into prepared pan, bang pan to get out any air bubbles, smooth top. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours or until thoroughly chilled.

Once cake chilled make glaze…
In small saucepan over medium heat, combine butter and cream, when reaches a boil remove from heat and add chocolate. Stir til smooth.
Carefully remove cake from pan(guide knife around edges to ensure they’ll come away clean)
Invert cake on a wire rack over a flat pan or wax paper. Pour glaze evenly over cake, allow to run down sides to completely cover cake. allow to firm up then transfer to serving plate. Top with fresh whipped cream. Refrigerate leftovers.

A couple of points…this cake is ALL about the chocolate so use a really good quality. If you prefer you can exchange bittersweet for semisweet.
You can heat ingredients for the cake on the stovetop vs the microwave, cook over medium heat, be careful not to go past bubbling stage.
If you want to change it up a little, add some roasted, coarsely chopped hazelnuts or walnuts.

  1. Polli – I had never heard of a grooms cake until I moved from Boston to Atlanta. I cookie groom’s cake is really different. I’m thinking it might make a nice summer dessert because it’s not baked and it’s served cold. Def worth a try.
