You know the tradition to save the top of your wedding cake to eat on your first anniversary? Ibis and I were good newleyweds and saved the top in my parents’ extra freezer (convenient since the reception was at their house) but then four months later we moved to Mexico. I didn’t think the cake would travel well — especially considering I had every belonging I could possibly cram into my car already occupying the precious cake space — so it’s remained in their freezer.
Over the weekend I cleaned out my parents’ fridge (yes this seems to be a theme) and my mom reminded me that the cake was still in the freezer. In its original cardboard box.
I did what anyone would do — I thawed that puppy out and we had it after dinner! It was a little dry in spots but the frosting (butter cream) was still deLIcious. Assuming you don’t mind the bits of flower left on the top.
Next up: sending out the rest of those thank you notes.
