Owning a slice of cake that's more than 40 years old might not sound all that appealing.

How about owning a slice of cake that's more than 40 years old, that happens to be the cake from Princess Diana and Prince Charles' wedding?

You could own this slice of history, although it won't come cheap. It's expected to sell for around £500 ($700).

How did this come about? A lady named Moyra Smith worked in the Queen Mother’s household at Clarence House and was given a piece of the cake. It turns out she held onto it, and it's now heading to auction after sitting in a cake tin for all these years.

The piece of cake is decorated in white icing with a gold, red, blue and silver royal coat of arms, along with icing that lines the borders. The slice is wrapped in plastic wrap and weighs about 28 ounces/800 grams.

If you are interested in bidding, the slice of cake can be found on the Dominic Winter Auction site.

Happy bidding!

  • I suspect it's now mainly decorated with Penicillium chrysogenum.
