Yes, you read the headline correctly! And, yes you are bound to have so many questions, just like us. But first things first – the news itself. So, King Charles and Camilla’s (now Queen Consort) marriage is public domain knowledge. They got married in April 2005! And, naturally, their wedding had a delish cake. Duh?!
But 17 years later, a slice of that very cake is all set to be auctioned. Yes, it is moldy, but who cares? Royal fans are brimming with excitement to “have” a slice of it!
King Charles And Camilla’s Wedding Cake Slice In A Tin Box!
Fans, and folks who love collecting royal memorabilia, can soon place bids for the souvenir from the historic event. It will come in the original tin which has kept the wedding cake for 17 years. The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall’s wedding nuptials are well-documented, but we’re quite surprised to see the cake being preserved, TBH!

The fruitcake at King Charles And Camilla’s has a beautiful pink tin that commemorates the date of the royal wedding – 9 April 2005 – which is inscribed. The inscription also bears King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla’s then titles and the royal cipher.
The lovely, royale cake was made by bakers Mary Robinson and Dawn Blunden in their cake shop called Sophisticake which is located in Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire. The cake was made using 1080 eggs and about 20 brandy bottles! Ooh, sounds yum!
Dawn told express.co.uk that she bagged the job for making the unique and lovely cake because of her son Darren (who had cooked for King Charles once and told him about his mother’s cake business). And after tasting her lovely creation, Charles loved it and commissioned the cake duties to her!
It is estimated that that slice is gonna fetch £600
