The hubby and I have a wedding anniversary coming up. Watching Made of Honor on TV this afternoon and CWG’s post about cheesecakes got me thinking… and curious about you, lovely readers.
Cake! Cake! Cake!
We had a glorious array of cake choices at our wedding reception. It was a 3-tiered cake with butter cream icing and red roses between each tier. Each cake was a different flavor. One tier was a marble pound cake swirl. Another was a lemon-blueberry pound cake. And the last one was… uh… I think… a plain vanilla pound cake. It was a long time ago! Then we also had three satellite cheesecakes that surrounded the 3-tiered cake. Those were also different flavors but were the same as the pound cakes.
They were soooo good. Sooo good. Way better than typical wedding cake! The cakes were so yummy in fact that a lot of guests had one slice of cheesecake and one of pound cake and loved every bite! So yummy in fact that pretty much only the top tier of the cake remained at the end of the reception, saved for us for the 1-year anniversary tradition. So yummy in fact that when we got home from our honeymoon, we went ahead and ate the top layer of the cake!
Can you tell that we are not overly traditional? I mean, who has cheesecake at their wedding reception. Well… us, of course! And who gets married on April Fool’s Day? Well… us, of course!
A year later for our anniversary, I ordered a small cake for us from the same bakery so that we could still have some cake. Funny thing, though. I have a very thoughtful friend from back home who did the same thing for us. She knew that we couldn’t resist the cake and ate it, so she ordered us a small cake from the same bakery and had it delivered to me at work! (She is so very awesome!) So we ended up with two cakes!
What kind of cake did/would you have for your wedding cake? And did/would you save part of the cake to eat on your first anniversary? If so, was it any good? (Lurkers, come out of hiding. Share your cake stories, too!)
