Being Johnny Foreigner, I'm not nearly as cynical about the royal family as the rest of my British friends. I love ol' Charles for fighting the good fight against Genetically Modified food, Camilla looks like she might be a bit of a laugh after a few glasses of Pinot, and Kate makes a way more believable normal-girl-turns princess than Anne Hathaway did.
So of COURSE I got myself into the wedding day spirit by baking!
First up, my normal stand-by Victoria sponge cake (my grandma's recipe) with a Union Jack in berries on top. Moments after tweeting a photo of this, I had a reply from BBC London asking if they could use the photo on the news! Excitement!
Then came the biscuits. I found these lovely wedding cookie cutters while on holiday in Louisiana. I baked up a batch of sugar cookies, then The Husband and I got to work decorating them with royal icing and sparkly balls. (Okay, it was mostly him - he has a steadier hand and a better eye for detail.)
White wedding doves with green eyes
Wedding dresses (The Husband had a bit too much fun designing a different dress for each biscuit. Should I be worried?)
By the time the wedding had finished, and Will had kissed Kate on the balcony the same way he used to kiss his mum, we had finished decorating everything. We packed it all up, along with some freshly baked scones with jam and thick cream, and headed over to our friends' house down the road for a Royal Wedding afternoon tea.
