At a starting bid of £100 ($162), a slice of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s beautiful wedding cake will be available at an online auction (PFC Auctions), running from May 3rd to May 24th 2012.

The delicious fruit cake has been wrapped in its original paper for preventing any damage. The cake comes in a sophisticated presentation tin, which is 5.5 inches long.

The beautiful wedding cake of the Royal Wedding had mesmerized most people of this decade. It was an eight-tiered cake, covered with icing, cream, and contained 900 sugar-paste flowers. Fiona Cairns, who specializes in creating customized cakes, had to spend 5 weeks for decorating the cake.

Fiona later revealed that while creating the cake, she paid attention to the brief offered by Kate. Fiona also divulged that she loved the fact that Kate had instructed her to place 17 foliage and blooms on the cake, which are known for their symbolism and referred to as ''the language of flowers." It was later revealed that base of the wedding cake included ivy leaves, which symbolized marriage, while the bottom three tiers included lavender, daisies, and Sweet William.

For royal memorabilia collectors, this is the time to own an invaluable piece of history.
