No English wedding fruitcake for HRH Prince Edward and Miss Sofie Rhys-Jones after their wedding on June 19, 1999. They selected a 7 tier Devil's food cake for their official cake that was topped with tennis rackets in a nod to the fundraiser where they met. The 10 ft creation took baker Linda Fripp and her staff 515 hours to create. Continuing to break with tradition, the Royal couple cut their cake PRIOR to serving dinner, something that is downright twenty first century.

I'll give Sophie, Countess of Wessex some play.  Cool pants.

Staying cool: Sophie picks extra wide-leg white trousers in Gibraltar heat... but they aren't very flattering from behind
