Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s 40-year-old wedding cake made headlines as it was planned to be auctioned on August 11.
According to reports, the price of the 28-ounce slice will be almost around 500 pounds.
The iced cake had a marzipan base and was decorated with a sugary facsimile of the royal coat of arms coloured in gold, red, blue and silver.
However, the cake had been safely preserved. Chris Albury from UK’s Dominic Winter Auctioneers said told Huffington Post, "it appears to be in exactly the same good condition as when originally sold." However, he was against the cake being consumed for valid reasons.
It was believed that the cake had been baked by head baker at the Royal Navy’s cooking school in Kent in the span of 14 weeks.
For those unversed, Prince Charles and Diana had an extravagant wedding ceremony at the St Paul’s Cathedral in London on July 29, 1981.
Charles had presented Diana with a Ford Escort Ghia Saloon Car as an engagement gift.
Apart from the cake, Diana’s workout outfits have also been auctioned for millions in the past.
