Auctioneer Julien’s of Beverly Hills had expected the cake to raise just $2,000 at most. It was eventually purchased by Gee Chuang, for nearly four times as much.

The cake was the centerpiece for the wedding and was the result of 5 weeks’ worth of labor. Created by baker Fiona Cairns, the eight-tiered cake was covered in 900 sugar flowers, and consisted of 17 individual fruit cakes.
