A slice of Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding cake up for auction

Once again royal fans have the chance to get their hands on a slice of Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding cake.

 A piece of Fiona Cairn's famous cake in its commemorative tin will go under auction on Wednesday 9 April with auctioneers Mellors and Kirk.

Relive William and Kate's royal wedding

 The Nottingham-based auction house reportedly hopes to fetch between £50 and £150 for the lot, although another slice of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding cake sold for £2,597 when it was bought by an American royal fan in November 2013.

Question:  why was the gift of the cake to the workers sent as a thank you from PC/Cam instead of the bride/groom?

And, the way I read it, the gift was to the workers who did the presentation tin for the cake, so the person who got the gift is already auctioning it off?  For a lousy, expected 50 - 150 pounds?  That's odd, to me.

Why would anyone want a slice of their wedding cake.  If I wanted to waste some money I could think of many other things to waste it on, that would not even be bottom of the list, it would not be on the list  easter-lol

What a hoot if it doesn't sell.  Wonder if we will ever find out.

Even if someone is dotty enough to buy a slice.  worship There is absolutely no way that you can be sure that it's part of the original cake.
Possible not royal cake, but fake, fruit cake.  Bit like them really.  tehe

Goodness me, who would pay that kind of money for a piece of mouldy old fruit cake.  How do they even know it is the real deal, the lazy duo are so fake, the cake could be fake too  laugh  I suppose there is always one  -  a fool and their money are easily parted  tehe

That's one pricey pud! Slice of Kate and William's wedding cake set to reach the princely sum of $2,000 at auction
Royal memorabilia is sought after by collectors around the world, particularly those pieces associated with weddings.

The general public aren't immune to the lure of marriage keepsakes either: it is rare to find a house in the UK without a commemorative mug or tea towel from either Charles and Diana's wedding or the more recent marriage of the Duchess of Cambridge to Prince William.

And now, an exiting new auction will offer collectors a unique opportunity to own a very special souvenir: a piece of the wedding cake from Kate and William's big day.

NEVER *despise* correction,for those who correct you ,truly LOVE you .They are willing to displease you and possibly lose your friendship ,rather than see you destroyed. Those who *despise* you ,on the other hand ,will allow you to FAIL...because what do they care ?

Every praise is not good and every criticism is not evil..!

I wonder if it has grown mold, like Bill and Cathy's relationship, just toxic.   ick ick ick ick  I bet my commemorative mug with the wrong wedding date of Chuck and Camz is worth more and prettier.

Probably worth nothing, and highly likely it was not part of the original cake.  It is a piece of cake for goodness sake, you can buy better at the local shop, and it is fresh.
