Victorian Royal Wedding Cake Sale
The cake was made for the marriage of Princess Louise and the Marquis of Lorne and is on sale at an antiques fair in Birmingham.
The one-inch cake is wrapped in antique parchment dating back to 1871.
The princess's wedding to a commoner was controversial and is said to have outraged the Prince of Wales.
Antique dealer John Shepherd, who bought the cake from a private seller, is asking for £145.
