The Queen has been serving her guests an after dinner sweet treat in honour of her 90th birthday - donated cakes.

Well-wishers have been baking cakes to mark the monarch's milestone and, not wanting to waste a crumb, slices have been offered to diners, said Lady Elizabeth Anson, a cousin of the Queen.

The 75-year-old, also the Queen's party planner, said birthday cakes baked by the public were taken to Windsor Castle.

"The lovely thing about her, nothing goes to waste. So there are all these lovely cakes and when she has a private party... the cakes are there to eat with your coffee - us Scots don't believe in waste," she said.
