It’s been a whole five days since Pippa Middleton married hedge fund manager James Matthews, but the hunger for every minute detail of their wedding — from the awkward best man speech to the glorious reception styling — rages on.
Reports have now given us a good idea of what was on the menu. It was a far cry from any of the weddings I’ve been to — dishes included caviar, langoustine and a muntjac carpaccio, and there was also a giant wheel of parmesan (yessss).
However, the wedding cake was… decidedly less interesting.
According to UK media outlets, it was a fruit cake with ivory icing.
Actually, no. We need to be more specific here, to really hammer home the horror:
Disclaimer: Obviously, fruit cakes are a longtime wedding tradition, and there's no doubting a high society wedding like Pippa and James' is as traditional as they come. They probably didn't have much room to break free from the shackles and embrace a 'naked' or 'drip' cake or whatever else is trendy these days.
