Would You Pay $1,600 for a Slice of Royal Wedding Cake?

When Marie-Antoinette cried "Let them eat cake!," she probably didn't think the sweet stuff would ever go for $1,600 a pop. But that's the royal amount a slice of cake served at the wedding of William and Katherine -- the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge -- is expected to fetch at an online auction, Today reports. The bidding starts on May 3.

Peanut Butter: Buy It vs. Make It

When I was pregnant with my older daughter, all I wanted was peanut butter. It was a sudden, overwhelming need to slather tubs of the stuff on anything that came my way -- most notably the oodles of leftover chocolate mousse wedding sheet-cake that took up most of my freezer.

Birthday Cake: Buy It vs. Make It

I've only been a mom for five years, but I've already run the gamut of possible birthday cakes. One year, my stepson said that he wanted a wedding cake, but a butterscotch one, so I bought three concentric round pans and made the weirdest-looking thing ever to hold a #10 candle.
