High bidder, cake auction

In the third hour of cake auctioning, an auctioneer rattled off higher and higher numbers as the price for Leah Carey’s spice cake continued to climb.

It broke $1,000. It reached $2,000. Within seconds, it was at $4,000. It climbed and climbed as two bidders topped one another. The final bid was $8,000.

$8k for the champion cake, and no picture of it. More "quality" journalism from the folks at the FNP.
