Chocolate Biscuit Cake

A cake made of British cookies and dark chocolate will be Prince William’s groom’s cake at the Royal Wedding. It’s a cake made from cookies!

Chocolate Biscuit Cake
Prince William is breaking from tradition by having a groom’s cake at his wedding. In addition to the traditional English fruit cake requested by Kate, there will be a chocolate biscuit cake for William. In the Betty Crocker Kitchens, we think two cakes are better than one- especially when one of the cakes is made from cookies. That’s right- cookies. 

The Royal Wedding cake will be based on one of William’s childhood favorites, chocolate biscuit cake. “Biscuit” is the British term for cookies. McVitie’s is a well known manufacturer of biscuits in the UK, and is making the groom’s cake for the wedding.

Biscuit Cake
We loved the idea of a cookie cake, so we made our own version. The no-bake cake is made by breaking up British biscuits into small pieces. Then the biscuits are tossed in a rich mixture of dark chocolate, cream and butter. The cake is chilled until set and then decorated with a thick layer of chocolate. It’s ultra rich and delicious. No wonder William loves chocolate biscuit cake! 

Rich tea biscuits or chocolate-coated digestive biscuits are used to make a British version of this cookie cake.

English Biscuits
Betty Crocker Cookies
If you can’t find British biscuits, you can substitute baked sugar cookies. We made a version of the chocolate biscuit cake with cookies baked from a pouch of Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix. 

We’re huge fans of cookie cake – there are so many possibilities! Next time we might try it with chocolate chip or peanut butter cookies and maybe mix in some toasted nuts or candy pieces.
