Missed out on auction in 2012? Well, now's your chance to snap up a slice of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding cake as it goes up for auction again!

According to Yahoo, a slice of the eight-tier cake created by Fiona Cairns will go on sale at Chiswick Auction House on 27 September 2017.

It will be auctioned at a starting price of £800, but is expected to be snapped up for thousands of pounds after a slice was sold for £8,000 in 2014.

The highest bidder will recieve the slice in a specially-designed cream and gold commemorative tin (sadly, it's no longer edible) alongside a special note from the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall.

Fancy placing a bid? It is possibly the most famous wedding cake in the world, after all...

LAST UPDATED: 10 May 2012

Owning 'a slice of history' has never been said so literally... but the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding cake goes under the hammer this week, allowing fans of the royal two to treasure this regal memorabilia.


This is the first ever slice of cake from the Royal couple's wedding to go on auction, and is expected to fetch quite a payment by the end of the auction, due to finish on 24 May.

Originally designed by Fiona Cairns, the royal fruit cake was given to the 650 afternoon reception guests at Buckingham Palace last April. The cake slice is said to have been supplied to online auction house PFC Auctions by an anonymous seller, who will not doubt have been at the reception last year.


On offer in its original presentation, the cake comes perfectly preserved in its specially commissioned tin, accompanied by a printed compliments slip from Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall.

The cake has already attracted over £1,450 bids so far, but we expect it the sale price to reach dizzying heights.
