Anybody else see this story on MSN?

If a slice of hundred year old cake costs $215, then people should quit complaining about the price of fresh, delicious cakes, right icon_lol.gif!

I just finished reading it.

or maybe we should stockpile our cakes and make people wait 138 years until they've reached their peak. I know. I know...this one slice has history...but, so would my stockpile, eh?

It would be cool, if a slice of one of my cakes went for 215 instead of 2.15...talk about an investment...that's how much of an increase????

2.15 to 215 in 138 years is only about a 3% annual return

I'm a huge history buff! I would totally spend money on a seemingly worthless item if it has some history attached to it! My only question is, how do you authenticate it!?!? Carbon dating??? I bet it's green and furry after 138 years! YUM!

Did you see in the article the original cake took 3 months to make?!?!?
Can you imagine today telling a bride that her cake took that long to make? LOL!

Traditional English wedding (fruit)cakes still take 3 months to make.
