Center City chef recreates royal wedding cake

    It’s not just the dress that’s being recreated. The buzz around today’s royal wedding has generated some local celebrations, the cake included.

    A Center City steakhouse is serving its version of the English tea cake.

    Thomas Heck, pastry chef at Davio’s Italian Steakhouse, has whipped up the cake and shared his recipe with KYW. Biscuit, dark chocolate, almonds and currants are just some of the glace cherry-topped ingredients.

    Don’t drop it on the dress.
