As Prince William and Kate celebrate their 10th Wedding Anniversary. I look back at his Grooms Cake, why he chose the Queen's favorite afternoon tea cake and the history of the recipe.

The Queen has two chocolate cakes "in her life" The ganache chocolate sponge (birthday cake) that I made a video of earlier and this one, her favorite… the chocolate biscuit cake. Below is the authentic recipe, easy to make, no bake and delicious!

Here's the recipe..
Chocolate Biscuit Cake
4 ounces dark chocolate.(for the cake)
4 ounces granulated sugar.
4 ounces unsalted butter. (softened)
8 ounces Rich tea biscuits.
½ teaspoon butter for greasing.

8 ounces dark chocolate (for coating) 1 ounce chocolate (for decoration)

Lightly grease a 6 inch by 2 ½ inch cake ring and place on a tray on a sheet of parchment paper. Break each of the biscuits into almond size pieces by hand and set aside. Cream the butter and sugar in a bowl until the mixture starts to lighten. Melt the 4 ounces of chocolate and add to the butter mixture whilst constantly stirring. Fold in the biscuit pieces until they are all coated with the chocolate mixture. Spoon the mixture into the prepared cake ring. Try to fill all of the gaps on the bottom of the ring because this will be the top when it is un-molded. Chill the cake in the refrigerator for at least three hours. Remove the cake from the refrigerator and let it stand while you melt the 8 ounces of chocolate. Slide the ring off the cake and turn it upside down onto a cake wire. Pour the melted chocolate over the cake and smooth the top and sides using a palette knife. Allow the chocolate to set at room temperature. Carefully run a knife around the bottom of the cake where the chocolate has stuck it to the cake wire and lift it onto a tea plate. Melt the remaining 1 ounce of chocolate and use to decorate the top of the cake. Makes 1 6 inch round cake – 8 portions.
