Wedding Cake of the day: Princess Charles and Lady Diana

We shed tiers of joy at the sight of this cake...

Prince Charles and Princess Diana's wedding cake  

Our wedding cake of the day is Prince Charles and Diana's wedding cake.

At their July 29, 1981 wedding Lady Diana Spencer and Prince Charles chose a 5-tiered wedding cake. The cake had a whiff of modernity, with its architectural, temple-esque facets and spare, columnar supports. But all the geometry is somewhat mitigated by its crown - a bit old thicket of regal blooms.

Topping out at more than 5 feet high, the cake was adorned with both the Prince and his family's royal coat of arms, the couple's first initials and a spray of roses, lilies of the valley and orchids.

The cake was prepared by chef David Avery of the Royal Naval Cookery School.

FYI - A slice of the top tier later sold at an auction in 2008 for $1,830. Oops!
