There was another famous queen who said of her countrymen, “Let them eat cake,” but for Queen Elizabeth II, it’s very much about letting her eat cake.
Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II is a lot like us in many ways — she loves a pre-bed glass of Champagne and a midday cocktail, but perhaps she’s most like us when it comes to her sweet tooth. Royal chef Darren McGrady, who cooked for the queen for 15 years, told RecipesPlus that the queen loves chocolate biscuit cake so much, she won't travel without it.
"Now the Chocolate Biscuit Cake is the only cake that goes back again and again and again everyday until it's all gone," McGrady said. Apparently, when the queen travels between her castles — tough life — she makes a senior chef follow, bringing the cake with him. Hey, who would say no to such service? You're basically required to take advantage of these opportunities when you're Her Majesty.
Oh, Queen Elizabeth, you're our muse! And when the queen enjoys her favorite cake, she enjoys it as you may enjoy a delicious lover. “She'll take a small slice every day until eventually there is only one tiny piece, but you have to send that up, she wants to finish the whole of that cake,” her chef said. Currently dying of laughter... and envy.
