Its been almost 40 years since the Royal wedding of Prince Charles with Princess Diana took place. Surprisingly, a slice from their grand wedding cake is still available. Although this current generation wasn’t present at the time of Charles and Diana’s wedding they still can have a piece of their wedding cake. Yes, you heard it right. According to a report by New York Post, a 28-ounce slice of the cake which was served at the Prince and Princess Wales’s wedding is now being sold at an auction on August 11.
Princess Diana’s wedding took place on July 29, 1981, at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. As per the report, the slice of cake was a part of an iced cake with a white marzipan base and decoration consisting of a sugary facsimile of the royal coat of arms coloured in gold, red, blue, and silver. It is also reported that the slice will be priced at approximately 500 pounds.
The cake slice was preserved by Chris Albury of the UK’s Dominic Winter Auctioneers. And they don’t advise anyone on eating it. According to Albury, the quality of the cake is unbelievably good. He said, ” “it appears to be in exactly the same good condition as when originally sold.” This amazing cake was baked over 14 weeks by David Avery, head baker at the Royal Navy’s cooking school in Kent reported by the New York Post.
