Cake History For Sale

New Zealand woman Katrina Greenslade is selling a piece of wedding cake on online auction site Trade Me which she says is from the 1981 wedding of Princess Diana and Prince Charles. She said for a while it was brought out for family and friends, but it has “gone a long time without any special attention.” Greenslade admits the icing has discoloured somewhat and has become detached from the fruitcake. “It smells like a piece of 3-year-old cake that has lived in a Tupperware container,” she told The Press. Greenslade’s father was given the piece of cake when one tier of the cake was given to RNZAF (Royal New Zealand Air Force) and one fifth came to Wigram, where her father worked. Bidding closes on January 19.
