Slice of Will and Kate’s Wedding Cake Up for Auction (for $1,620!)
This Thursday, a slice of Will and Kate’s one-year anniversary cake will go up for auction, MSNBC.com reports. Minimum bid starts at 1,000 pounds ($1,620). It’s not the first time a slice of royal wedding cake has hit the auction block. In 2008, a slice of Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s cake went for $1,830.
And everyone remembers the scene from Seinfeld where Elaine eats Queen Victoria’s wedding cake out of her bosses office, right?
