Ew, ew, ew, ew, ew. Why would you PAY money out of your own pocket to buy a slice of cake that’s more than two years old? According to a new report from The Daily Beast, a slice of Prince William‘s and Kate Middleton‘s wedding cake has sold at a Beverly Hills auction for more $4,610, more than two years after it was initially unveiled at the wedding.
I can’t stress this enough, but EW. Call me crazy, but I cannot understand the value of keeping spoiled cake around for that long. Can you imagine the sight? It was probably frozen solid for the entire two years, but it certainly is odd that this mysterious benefactor waited two years before selling it. Well, it’s weirder that he decided to steal a slice of cake and then keep it for two years. I wonder what his or her thought process was during the actual heist of the cake slice. Did they quietly slip it into a plastic container and then stuff it into their bag? Did they cut a slice, and then realize that some idiot might be willing to pay thousands of dollars for it in the future?
In terms of it being spoiled cake – well, fruit cake actually does end up keeping for years, and it apparently improves with age. I will never try to prove that theory wrong, so I’ll just go with it being a fact. It’s still creepy and invasive, and I actually want to see William’s and Kate’s reaction to finding out that a piece of their wedding cake has actually been sold at an auction. Unfortunately, the benefactor’s identity and the buyer’s identity are being kept confidential, even though the auction house confirmed that the slice of cake did, in fact, sell for $4,610.
