Victoria Beckham is known to have a strict diet, with her husband David sharing that his wife has eaten fish every day since he's known her, and her love of healthy eating extends to her cake choices.

Rather than traditional sponge cakes, VB often opts for a cake made out of watermelon, choosing a healthy option for her celebrations. And it seems it's not just her birthday that sees Victoria swap classic cakes for a fruit-based concoction.

On her and David's 1999 wedding day, the duo had a three-tier wedding cake made out of apples, which saw the couple famously cut the cake with a dramatic sword.

VB's love of fruit-based cakes might come as a surprise to her superfans, who will be aware that the 49-year-old has spoken in the past about how she tries to avoid fruit the majority of the time, for an unexpected reason.

Speaking to Net-A-Porter, Victoria revealed that she mostly cut fruit from her diet as it caused her to bloat. "I love fruit but don't eat too much, as it can make me feel quite bloated," she explained, before going into more detail of her eating habits.

"I eat lots of fresh fish, fresh vegetables and salads, as well as seeds and nuts," the fashion mogul said. "I am disciplined with my eating – that's how I find I get the most out of my body."

She continued: "My treat is a few glasses of red wine, and I also love tequila, and I do eat carbs. I have lots of avocado and really good fats, like salmon."

The Spice Girl welcomed in the final year of her forties with a baked Alaska-style cake topped with pink candles, mint and fresh fruit, sharing a photo of herself enjoying a forkful.

Victoria also sidestepped her diet in February of this year, following pleas from her daughter, Harper, to recreate her older brother Brooklyn's steak soup recipe.
