2014 70¢ Wedding Cake
 
The 2014 stamp covered the two-ounce rate, which is often required for wedding invitations and other oversize cards.  The first Wedding Cake stamp was issued in 2009. 
 
Over a quarter of all wedding costs are for catering: hors d’oeuvres, buffets, dinners, and desserts. The wedding cake, possibly a caterer’s most important task, surprisingly remains a relatively small expense in an otherwise costly event.
The cake, cake topper, and cutting fees quite often ring up under $600. The average cost per slice is about the same as at a restaurant. However, more involved recipes and elaborate decorating can easily increase even the smallest budget for a wedding cake.  
 
Regardless of cost, it remains an important element of the festivities on a couple’s most important day.
 
The wedding cake pictured on this stamp was created and designed by Pastry chef Peter Brett. Renée Comet took the photograph.

  • 1847 5¢ Benjamin Franklin, red-brown, thin bluish wove paper, imperforate U.S. #1 - First U.S. Postage Stamp

    On July 1, 1847, the first US postage stamps went on sale.  The 5¢ issue of 1847 (US #1) features a portrait of Benjamin Franklin, the man responsible for organizing America's postal service back in the 1700s.  Postal clerks used scissors to cut the stamps from sheets, as perforations weren't in use yet.  Today, US #1 is a valued piece of American postal history and a lucky find in any condition.
