Queen Elizabeth is crazy about her cake, especially her chocolate cake. I guess that makes her human, because who doesn't love cake? And if you had the option of having a chef follow you around with cake when you go places, wouldn't you take full advantage? I know I would.
The queen's private chef Darren McGrady, who cooked for her for 15 years, said that the queen loves chocolate biscuit cake the most, according to Cosmopolitan. She will even have a senior chef follow her train with the cake when she needs to travel to Windsor Castle.
Of course, Queen Elizabeth likes all different kinds of cake. Huffington Post reports that she usually takes just a slice of any cake that is prepared for her, unless it's the chocolate biscuit cake. That cake is very special.
"Now the Chocolate Biscuit Cake is the only cake that goes back again and again and again everyday until it's all gone," McGrady said. "She'll take a small slice every day until eventually there is only one tiny piece, but you have to send that up, she wants to finish the whole of that cake."
The chef has also revealed that Queen Elizabeth is a "chocoholic." She apparently loves chocolate, which has become clear based on her preference for the chocolate cake. He said that usually anything he put on the menu that included chocolate would get passed around. That included the chocolate mousse. Chocolate Perfection Pie, he said, was probably her favorite dessert.
