Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are all set to tie the knot. I love a royal wedding, and I love wedding cake — okay, I love any and all cake and I have a special love of the kind of bakery cake that is normally used at weddings, don’t know why, there’s just something about that kind of cake — but I have to admit that even I am not sure about the royal wedding cake pieces that are being auctioned off as a way of getting people even more ‘in the mood’ for this particular royal happening.
I mean, I’m not sure that even I, the cake lover of all time, want a piece of 37-year-old wedding cake. But it’s out there! Really. Yes. It is.
Shortly, Julien’s Auctions will auction off several slices of wedding cake from previous royal weddings. If you’re into really aged royal wedding cake and have very deep pockets, you can purchase pieces from William and Kate’s wedding in 2011, Charles and Camilla’s in 2005, and Charles and Diana’s in 1981.
Seems that guests at those weddings have been saving them in the freezer so they should be good enough to eat. Still, I think I’ll pass on mummified wedding cake.
Maybe I’ll stop by the local bakery, buy a white cake with white frosting and chow down while watching Harry and Meghan tie the knot on TV. Or maybe I’ll pass on the show and just enjoy the cake. Or nibble away while working on my next romance because — think about it — romance involves weddings and weddings involve cake.
Is that why I like cake so much? Don’t know.
I just know that I do love cake.
