(yep, the one where you eat cake that's been sitting in your freezer for a year.)
well, we decided to forgo that tradition.
it didn't help that we knew we'd be moving across the country and it would be challenging to move the cake with us.
so, for our anniversary, nicholas and i had a cake made for us at icing on the cake bakery.
it was really, really good.
we used the butterflies from our wedding cake on our anniversary cake, but decided to mix up the flavor. our actual wedding cake was almond cake, pineapple cake and strawberry cake (each tier was a different flavor) with buttercream icing. for our anniversary cake, we went with buttermilk chocolate cake with chocolate filling and cream cheese frosting. delicious!
we still had the butterflies as momentos from our wedding, but moist, fresh, melt-in-your-mouth cake, too. we enjoyed our cake at dinner on saturday, and then on sunday, and then on monday..... :)
