Britain’s Prince William has requested a groom’s cake made out of McVitie’s Rich Tea Biscuits for his wedding. Here’s a look what they are and how they’re made.
April 25, 2011 McVitie's Rich Tea Biscuits, just out of the oven, whiz by on a conveyor belt at United Biscuits factory in London. The biscuits are "the equivalent of the old-fashioned English nursery, where children were always made to eat bread before the slice of cake. In the cookie world, it’s the equivalent of the bread," says British food writer Nigella Lawson. “This is one of those foods where the authentic version is made in the factory.” Linda Davidson/The Washington Post Buy Photo
