A slice of Prince William and Duchess Catherine’s wedding cake sold at auction for an unexpected $7,500 on November 5, CNN Money reported.

Julien’s of Beverly Hills had predicted a slice of fruit cake from the eight-tier cake served at the 2011 wedding ceremony would earn $2,000 at most.

The fruit cake was given to guests at the royal wedding of Will and Kate in 2011, which one invitee sold to the auction place. The cake, which was a bespoke creation, took the baker Fiona Cairns five weeks to make and is said to peak in flavor 13 months after it was baked, comes in a tin along with a blank invitation to the wedding presented on the Queen’s stationery.

The elaborate gateau was covered in cream and white icing and decorated with 900 delicate sugar-paste flowers. The culinary masterpiece took center stage at the Buckingham Palace reception held in the picture gallery on the day of their wedding.
