Next time you’re at the wedding of someone you think could one day become a US President, it might be best not to eat your cake but to ask for it to be stowed in a takeaway box (if it’s available).
Or you could just take your own Tupperware box with you for next time and keep a separate fridge for future wedding cakes pieces.
At least that would be my advice after reading that a wedding cake souvenir from Donald and Melania Trump's wedding in 2005 was just auctioned off yesterday for a stunning amount of $2,240.
That’s a lot of money for what’s probably stale cake by now.
The chocolate truffle desert with a buttercream rose on top was a party favour from the first couple's 2005 wedding given to all their guests.
The original and main cake which the couple cut was a $50,000 seven-tier confection, but that one had too much wire in it for guests to actually eat.
Los Angeles-based Julien’s Auctions, who wouldn’t say who had actually offered the small piece of cake, was astonished by the high price they got for the preserved cake. They originally had the bidding at only $250.
Darren Julien, president of Julien’s Auctions in Culver City admitted that some guests booed the confection: “But we are online also, so Republicans were able to bid safely.”
This year, any former belongings of President Trump (including golf clubs and sketches) have sold for high prices.
