There's that lovely old saying - a fool and their money are soon parted. We believe it's even harder for fools and money to get together in the first place.

This, however, is a real head-scratcher. Someone forked out $1,375 - or €1,047.02 in our money - for a slice of Princess Diana and Prince Charles' wedding cake.

The marriage, which famously ended in divorce, took place in 1981 and was televised around the world.

The cake, which was bought by a private collector, is sealed in its original wax paper.

The auction house, Nate D Sanders, claim that some collectors have even managed to purchase wedding cakes dating back to Queen Victoria, claiming that it's a highly profitable culture.

Right so, whatever you in to.
