Auction house spokesman Sam Heller says the buyer is a private collector.

Although the cake came wrapped in its original wax paper, Heller says it wouldn’t be a good idea to try to eat it. Heller says, “There is a small but dedicated group of royal cake collectors,” adding that some have purchased cakes dating to the days of Britain’s Queen Victoria, who married in 1840
