Paying too much for a dessert is the last thing on your mind, but on a special occasion such as a wedding, you need to cough up. Average spending on a wedding cake in the United States is around $500, according to Wedding Wire. It is understandable that these delicious deserts cost so much because they require a lot of work and they need to be eye-catching and not only tasty. Usually, wedding cakes have multiple tiers, and they are covered with fondant.
If you believe that spending more than $500 for a cake is ludicrous, you would be shocked to learn how much royal families spend for their wedding cakes. For instance, one slice of the wedding cake served at Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s wedding was priced at $2,000 in 2015. No matter how much they cost, we present you some weddings with astonishing cakes.
1. Princess Anne and Captain Mark Phillips
One slice which was auctioned in 2015 comes from a cake served at Captain Mark Phillips and Princess Anne’s wedding which was in 1973.
Of course, the slice was “not suitable for consumption,” but still who was the lucky person who bought it? However, when the cake was served, it looked delicious, and it was 5 feet 8 inches tall, consisting of five tiers.
