Wedding cakes are always special and memorable, especially if it’s worth R53 000 a slice.

That’s what one man paid for a slice of cake from Princess Diana and Prince (now King) Charles’ wedding back in 1981. The wedding took place on 29 July at St. Paul’s Cathedral.

When Diana and Charles got married, more than 20 cakes were supplied by bakeries all over the country.

In 2021, some of Diana’s memorable items were put on auction at an exhibition. One of the items at this auction was a piece of cake from the wedding.

Layton, who hails from Leeds, bought the piece of cake for R53 000. His plan is to add the item to one of his many collections. One day, when Layton has passed away, his estate will be donated to charities.

News24 reports that the large slice of cake is made from icing and marzipan, weighing 800 grams. It also features a sugared icing of the Royal Coat of Arms and a small silver horseshoe.

Other items included in the exhibition include sketches, photographs and gowns designed for three generations of royal women including Princess Margaret and the Queen Mother.
