When Grace Kelly wed Monaco’s Prince Rainier on April 19, 1956, her six-tier wedding cake proved fit for a princess. Given to the newlyweds by the pastry chefs at Monte-Carlo’s famed Hôtel de Paris, the treat’s upper two tiers featured a built-in cage that held a pair of live turtledoves – they were released when the couple cut into the cake with Prince Rainier’s sword. The cake was topped off with a revolving miniature bride and groom that played ‘Ave Maria’ and Mendelssohn’s ‘Wedding March’.
