A wedding cake slice from the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge has been sold at an auction in Beverly Hills for $6,000.

Auctioneer Julien’s of Beverly Hills had expected the cake to raise just $2,000 at most. It was eventually purchased by Gee Chuang, for nearly four times as much.

The cake was the centerpiece for the wedding and was the result of 5 weeks’ worth of labor. Created by baker Fiona Cairns, the eight-tiered cake was covered in 900 sugar flowers, and consisted of 17 individual fruit cakes.

The cake is presented in a special collector’s tin, engraved with the words “William & Catherine 29 April 2011” and wrapped in greaseproof paper, the same way samples of the cake were handed out to guests of the royal wedding. The box comes with an official wedding card and blank invitation.
