This is my Americanized version of Prince William’s chocolate fridge cake served as his groom’s cake at the royal wedding. I first saw Carolyn Robb share this recipe on Rachel Ray a few weeks ago, and could barely wait for the big day to make this fabulous cake. Carolyn Robb was the executive chef to Diana, Charles, William and Harry from 1989 until 2000. She shared their family recipe for this fridge cake and also gave ingredient substitutions so that we can easily make it with pantry ingredients in our own American kitchens. From the original recipe, I halved it, and used a slightly smaller dish to press it into.
