(PCM) Julien’s Auctions in Beverly Hills, CA has just sold a slice of wedding cake from the 2011 royal wedding of Prince William and Dutchess Catherine for the whopping sum of $7,500!
In fact, the auction house claims they were only expecting to receive about $1,000 or $2,000 at most for the cake slice. The slice is a fruit cake, which according to CNNMoney was eight tiers tall and took the bakers five weeks to make. It is also said that the cake will peak in flavor 13 months after it was baked and comes in a tin along with a blank invitation to the wedding presented on the Queen’s stationary.
The cake was made by Chef Fiona Cairns and her team and is decorated with icing flowers, petals and leaves. The auction buyer has been revealed as Gee Chuang, the CEO of Listia.com and he claims that he plans to give the slice of royal wedding cake away on his website to celebrate William and Catherine’s upcoming fourth wedding anniversary this April.
A few years back Julien’s auction house also sold a slice of Prince William’s parents, Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s wedding cake that was about 27 years old for the amount of $6,000.
