Neat.

It is beautifull, but $2000.00 american seems a bit much for a piece of old wedding cake (no matter whose it might be) Amazing what people will waste money on. IMHO!!

Exactly! LOL - I thought the very same thing - the piece of wedding cake from King Edward, who abdicated the throne to marry Wallis Simpson.

Wow, how is it still in such great condition? Smart of her to save that piece of cake.

Their cakes were traditional rich fruit cakes, and whilst those things last a good while (mental note to self - I'm actually late making my rich fruit cakes for Christmas - they should be made and maturing by now!), 27 years is really pushing it!

I read in another article that it was a slice of marzipan and icing rather than cake.

I know traditional celebration cakes in England are fruit cakes covered with marzipan, and royal icing.

That's right, bonjovibabe. I should've thought of that. Been living in the UK for 2 years now. Duh!! Fruit cake.

Are you kidding! If I had the money (and the know-how to be in on such things thumbs_up.gif ) I would've totally bought it!

27 years? How old am I??? icon_cry.gificon_cry.gif

I love how the article says the one who bought it wishes to remain anonymous. Wouldn't you, too? Then everyone would know the idiot who paid that much for a slice of old cake!

Darn! It's not from their actual wedding cake, but instead a cake made in honor of the wedding and shared as a thank you to certain staff members!
