Mmm, year old cake...

There's nothing like looking foward to a year old cake to help you look forward to your next year of marriage. hahaha - sounds so solemn doesn't it?! But on the contrary - the anticipation of eating that thing somehow makes celebrating 1 year of marriage fun and even DARING! I actually think that husbands look forward to this one part of the celebration as if they were participating in some Fear Factor episode or something of that sort. Either way - we did the said tradition and though the photos aren't as interesting really, I just had to share this experience; especially for those married folk who can sympathize with our tastebuds in having done this tradtition before.

The Cake Box from the hotel - never saw it until today since my mom had wrapped the box up in brown packing paper...looks nice! Maybe this won't be so bad?

Surprise! What? What is that brown stuff?

It's the flowers! They're still on the cake? They actually don't look so bad structurally after being frozen for so long. But ew - better pluck them out.

Ready to Cut! Slicing off any part of the cake that touched the flowers, just to be safe. :)

Taking the centermost pieces sounds like a good idea to me...

Someone told me that a survey taken of people eating their wedding cake showed that those who drank some kind of alcohol with their meal or while they were eating their cake tended to NOT get sick...so Port it is!

All in all, it wasn't half bad. My husband said the cake was a little dry and the filling a little mushy but not as bad as we had thought. It was actualy, *gasp!*, edible. :) We actually both ate our pieces of cake, however, in true traditional fashion, we wisely threw the rest out. :P

I didn't open the beautiful box either when we packed it otherwise I would've removed the flowers. I loved your step-by-step description of your consumption of this beautiful cake. Happy Anniversary!!!! Can't believe it's been a whole year!!!

Love

Without the flowers, it wouldn't have been as interesting! :) My girlfriend sent me her friend's website video of them eating theirs and theirs had the flowers too, haha. It was fun watching them open their cake box too. I wonder if the hotel people are like, "hehe...", as they were closing the box...

Wow!! You actually waited a whole year?? Brandt and I ate ours on our 1 month anniversary! Our cake was too yummy that we didn't want to take a chance of it being bad after a year. So much for that tradition...edible cake trumps tradition in our house every time!!

Happy 1st anniversary!
