Worlds oldest wedding cake!

Here is the worlds oldest wedding cake! Made in 1898 this cake has recently been donated to a museum where it can rest for its retirement. For this old cake has seen many things, its been on display in a bakers window and survived bombing in the war. It's icing has browned with age but would have originally been white to show purity. although you would be forgiven for not wanting to tuck in apparently the cake is still moist 113 years after being baked!
For the complete history of the cake see http://www.dailymail.co.uk

I doubt any of my cakes will get past the first few days, they always seem to get munched so quick. However in some cultures keeping a slice of wedding cake and placing it under your pillow is surposed to make you dream of the person you will marry, your one true love.
