For sweet tooth brides, the wedding cake could very well be the best part of your big day (besides actually tying the knot, of course!) — or at least, the most delicious! From classic tiered confections, to floral-adorned, sugary masterpieces, we're hungry fans of every delectable sweet in the wedding universe! But famous wedding day desserts? Now those just take the cake! A slice of Princess Diana and Prince Charles' 1981 wedding cake is set to go to auction Thursday, so you too can have a taste of royalty — if you happen to have $4,000 lying around, that is!
Thirty-four years later and we're still obsessed with the opulent nuptials of Princess Diana and Prince Charles. It was the wedding bells heard round the world and now, a mere three decades later, you can own a literal slice of its history! According to The Mirror UK, the classic British fruit cake is set to sell for $4,000 at a Los Angeles auction house later today, and comes packaged in it's original keepsake box, wrapped in a doily, and with a card that reads, "With best wishes from Their Royal Highnesses, The Prince & Princess of Wales." Wonder if there's anyway to put this on your wedding registry...
Apparently, since the cake contains such a high alcohol content, it's supposedly still very much edible (But then again, do you really want to chow down on a 34-year-old fruit cake?).

Baked by the former head baker of the Royal Navy cooking school, the entire five-tiered showstopper took 14 weeks to make. So it has to still be good right? Kidding. Please don't eat this. But if you want your piece of cream cheese-frosted, royal history (and have some leftover moolah in your wedding budget), get bidding, brides!
