Wieden + Kennedy, London recently had an epiphany, that they share initials with the royal couple William and Kate. Big whoop, right? Well, it is to them. So much so, some of their in-house designes (Jo Glover and Philip Cooper) decided to create a celebratory installation in the window of their Hanbury Street office.They made a spectacular six-foot high wedding cake based on Royal wedding cakes from the past.
