Following on The Royal Wedding Cake Theme!


A couple of days ago we updated about a slice of Queen Victoria's daughter's wedding cake that was going for auction in Birmingham.

Well today it has been announced that a slice of Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s wedding cake is to be auctioned at Cottees Auctions in East Street, Wareham on June 2nd 2009




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.

Royal Wedding Cake
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.

The sale starts at Cottees East Street premises at 10am on June 2nd, so if you're looking for a piece of 28 year old history - be there!

  2. I am also a fan of royal weddings. These are quite expensive but are truly elegant. I am also thinking to have a grand Royal themed wedding party. At domestic indoor wedding venues Chicago I would be tying wedding knot soon and these days collecting various ideas for party.
