How much would you pay for a 65-year old piece of cake?
A piece of the Queen’s wedding cake, discovered last year in a filing cabinet at a hospice, has sold for £1,100.
An antique dealer has purchase the antique cake and plans on using it to commemorate the Jubilee.

Wrapped in cellophane, in a box inscribed with the words: ‘Buckingham Palace 20th November 1947,’ the cake was given to CH Spackman, one of the couple’s guards of honour, at their Westminster Abbey wedding.
It came with a greeting card, which read: ‘With the best wishes of Their Royal Highnesses The Princess Elizabeth and The Duke of Edinburgh.
So – will the buyer try a bite?
It was old and a strange colour. It’s not much to look at and I certainly didn’t consider having a bite to see what it tasted like.’
