Prince William and Kate Middleton Prince William and Kate Middleton

Prince William and Kate Middleton have chosen a multitiered, traditional fruitcake to serve as a centerpiece at their royal wedding, according to the royal wedding website.

The cake, baked by Fiorna Cairns, will have a British floral theme and will be decorated with the couple's new cipher — most likely made up of their initials — which will be revealed on their wedding day.

Each tier of the icing-covered, brandy-flavored fruitcake will have a different theme, according to Cairns. The cake will also feature 3-D scrollwork, leaves and flowers — including the English rose, Scottish thistle, Welsh daffodil and Irish shamrock.

Other flowers include the bridal rose, which symbolizes happiness; the lily of the valley, which represents sweetness and humility; and ivy leaves, which stand for marriage. Cairns has already started baking to allow the cake the necessary time to mature.

For those guests with a big sweet tooth (including Prince William), there will be a second cake at the April 29 nuptials: a chocolate cookie cake. The cake — which the prince specifically requested — will be made by the McVitie's company from a favorite recipe of the Windsors.

The creation will contain some 35 pounds of chocolate and about 1,700 McVitie's tea biscuits.
