Slice of Princess Dianas Wedding Cake Snags $1,375 at Auction
A Los Angeles auction house has sold a slice of cake from Princess Diana's wedding to Prince Charles for $1,375. The 33-year-old slice of cake was sold online by Nate D. Sanders Auctions. The cake, described as "Extremely rare" on the auction house's website, came with a card, which read: "With best wishes from Their Royal Highnesses, the Prince & Princess of Wales." So who wants a cake from 1981 that's wrapped in its original wax paper and doily? Just one person, it turns out. The auction house started the bid at $1,100 and got just one taker, according to its website. Sam Heller, spokesman for the auction house, said it wouldn't be a good idea to eat the cake. In 2012, a 31-year-old slice from the same royal nuptials was auctioned off in Beverly Hills, according to Vanity Fair. Some collectors have purchased cakes dating back to Britain's Queen Victoria, who married in 1840, Heller said.
