The bidding is currently at $2500, but note: "The piece of cake up for auction is actually a sugar-frosted decoration on cardboard—it was spirited away from the ceremony by a police officer who was part of the event's security staff.

Along with a program from the event, the piece is expected to bring between $5,000 and $10,000." -Collector's Weekly
