Victorian Royal Wedding Cake Sale

Posted by admin on Apr 17, 2009

A 138-year-old slice of cake thought to be the only surviving item from the wedding of one of Queen Victoria’s daughters has gone on sale.

The cake was made for the marriage of Princess Louise and the Marquis of Lorne and is on sale at an antiques fair in Birmingham.

The one-inch cake is wrapped in antique parchment dating back to 1871.

The princess’s wedding to a commoner was controversial and is said to have outraged the Prince of Wales.

Antique dealer John Shepherd, who bought the cake from a private seller, is asking for £145.
