By the slice …

The next time you’re concerned about the per-slice price of wedding cake, consider this: a bidder in England paid more than $1,800 for a piece of one of the 23 official cakes served at the wedding of Princess Diana and Prince Charles in 1981. The slice was given to a woman who worked for the Queen Mother at the time; before her recent death, she asked that it be sold and the proceeds donated to charity. Forget freezing it — the slice of cake was wrapped in plastic wrap and stored in an attic all these years. The icing and marzipan are apparently a little cracked, but otherwise in good shape!
