|The cake is still in its original presentation box and is believed to have been given to a member of the Royal Household at the time, who has now decided to sell it. |
Charles and Diana's wedding had an official five-tier cake made for the wedding but the piece being auctioned came from one of 22 other cakes made for the ceremony.
|In 2008 a slice of just icing (not cake!) from the original official five tier wedding cake sold for £1,000 at auction in Gloucestershire. |
You can see the coat of arms, and the cream icing is very well preserved.
