A slice of cake from the wedding of Princess Diana and Prince Charles in 1981 was sold at $2,565 in an auction held in Britain.
The 40-year-old cake that has a warning not to eat was purchased by a private collector named Gerry Layton from Leeds, England at Dominic Winter Auctioneers located in Cirencester, England.
The cake was preserved in a cake tin with a label that says, "Handle with care" dated 29 July 1981, the day of the wedding.
Meanwhile, according to the auctioneers the cake was first given to Moyra Smith, who formerly worked for Queen Elizabeth II's mother in central London.
After Smith's death, her family decided to sell the cake slice at the same auction house in 2008 for £1,000 to a private collector.
"It appears to be in exactly the same good condition as when originally sold, but we advise against eating it," the auctioneers added.
