Now's your chance to own a piece of royal history! A 34-year-old slice of wedding cake from the nuptials of Prince Charles and Princess Diana is set to be auctioned off, and it can be yours at upwards of $1,100.

The delicious and beautiful dessert is a classic British fruitcake with cream cheese frosting baked by David Avery, the then head baker of the Naval Armed Forces. The treat was served at an intimate wedding breakfast reception at Buckingham Palace following the ceremony at St. Paul’s Cathedral. Each guest received a boxed slice of cake to commemorate the occasion.

The cake slice is being sold by Nate D. Sanders Auctions, and comes packaged in the original white and silver presentation box that features the Prince of Wales's feathers and a ''CD'' monogram along with the wedding date. The original gift card is also included, and reads: With best wishes from/Their Royal Highnesses/The Prince & Princess of Wales." The entire piece is wrapped in the original wax paper and doily. One thing's certain: This is one dessert we can bet you won't want to eat.
