Kensington Palace announced in a press release on Monday, July 9, that the cake served at Prince Louis’ christening, which was held at the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace in London on Monday afternoon, is actually from seven years ago.

However, there’s actually a sweet reason why the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge elected to serve cake that’s much older than their 2-month-old son. Per British tradition, the confection served in little Louis’ honor on Monday is a tier of Prince William and Duchess Kate’s 2011 wedding cake.

Britain’s Prince Louis – the youngest child of Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge – was christened on Monday, July 9, and guests are eating cake from seven years ago – details.

That regal dessert, which had eight tiers, was designed by Fiona Cairns and was made from 17 individual fruit cakes. Per the Kensington Palace press release, the cake was decorated with cream and white icing using the Joseph Lambeth technique, and there were up to 900 individually iced flowers and leaves of 17 different varieties decorated on the sweet treat.

In other words, though Prince Louis’ cake has been on the planet longer than he has, it actually is quite meaningful to his parents. Furthermore, the cake was also served at Prince George’s christening in 2013, and then again when Princess Charlotte was christened in 2015.

As several Brits noted on Twitter, this custom is quite common in the UK. “It’s a strange tradition we have,” wrote one. “The top tier of the wedding cake is kept aside for any future christenings.”

Added another: “It’s a British custom. Fruit cake laced with enough brandy lasts until the end of the world.”
