What Happens When You Eat Old Cake

Nothing (at least nothing yet, it's only been a few hours).

I defrosted our one-year old wedding cake for my and the hubs' anniversary. Yes, it's been officially a year and we still love each other. Back to the cake, I gotta be honest, it didn't taste terrible. I really wasn't expecting much. In fact, I expected very bad things. And it tasted...not bad! Still moist, buttercream still buttery and creamy, with the raspberry curd I picked out. The shimmery quilted fondant still with its glitter and the black and white anemone made it through in one piece.

Here's our cake in all of its original glory:

And now a year later...


After a couple slices, you can see all the pretty layers:

My sister hand made these felt owls for my bridal shower last year and we forgot to include them on the wedding day. Never fear, they eventually saw the cake:
Of course, Buddy's giant ear is covering part of hubs. Typical Buddy. Staring at the cake.
Cheers, baby, to the next 50 years!!

Aww! Happy anniversary! I was pleasantly surprised with how our cake tasted one year later. :) Now, give Buddy some cake.

Wow it still looks really good! Ours was pretty soggy and didn't have much flavor, but wasn't as bad as I imagined. It looked a hot mess though after being squished in the freezer for a year and week.
