Mmm, pieces of Queen Victoria's wedding cake

Breaking News

LONDON -- They won't let you eat cake at Windsor Castle, but visitors are being invited to admire a couple of 167-year-old slices.

Pieces of Queen Victoria's wedding cake will go on display as part of an exhibition on Royal weddings from 1840 to 1947 to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II's diamond anniversary this year, palace officials said.

The slices will be on display for a year starting on April 27 in small boxes, one cardboard, another silver, marked "Buckingham Palace February 10, 1840" -- the date of Victoria's marriage to Prince Albert.

They are from one of the couple's several wedding cakes, the largest of which measured 3 yards across and weighed more than 300 pounds.
