While some may disagree, Kim Kardashian is living it up like American royalty – and eating like it too.  The reality star is dropping a cool $20,000 on her wedding cake, which was fashioned to look like the one that rang in the real royal couple’s nuptials back in April.

According to the New York Post, Kim K. and her hubby-to-be Kris Humphries settled on a 10-tier white cake with chocolate chip frosting from Los Angeles bakery Hansen’s Cakes. Prince William and Duchess Kate dropped $80,000 on their cake, which fed 1,900 guests. No word on how many guests are attending on Kim’s big day, but the Post is reporting that 50 people have been disinvited due to space restrictions. To ease the sting, we hope they’ll at least get some conciliation cake if there’s any left over, and maybe one of the 720 bottles of wine ordered for the event.

How important is a wedding cake, and how much are you willing to spend for a good one?
