We were bad Newlyweds. Very, very bad! Why, you might ask?
We ate the top of our cake… 11 months early.
The tradition is that you save (by freezing) the top of your wedding cake, so that you can have a slice of it together on your 1 year Wedding Anniversary. When Mr. Knight and I got home from our honeymoon, we couldn’t wait to dig into our Wedding cake. At our Wedding we barely got to eat any of it’s deliciousness, so we were eager to finally get our slice of ‘tropical carrot cake’ heaven. Plus, we were given advice from our baker to eat the cake now, not later, as the whole freezing process is no bueno for the cake.
We followed the thawing directions given to us by our baker, and then slowly started to unwrap this baby for some sweet dessert after dinner one night. Okay, so maybe we were back from our honeymoon for all of 2 days when we decided it was time to eat our cake. :-)
Here I am, examining the cake and thinking about how yummy it is. I’m wearing my new shirt from Paia, Maui store Alice in Hulaland (super cute shop in hippie town).
Cutting the cake a 2nd time. We already had plates ready to eat up the scrumptiousness we were expecting.
Looks super yummy, right? But was it yummy? Not really. :-(
Our Consensus: Don’t wait to eat your cake, because after freezing the cake, it will taste nasty whether it was frozen for a year or 1 month. We were pretty depressed at the lack of yumminess.
We vow to order a small cake from the same baker in our beloved ‘tropical carrot cake’ on our 1 year anniversary (in 11 months). I placed the icky 1 month old cake back in our fridge, as Mr. Knight swore he would ‘snack’ on it over the course of the week. He didn’t touch it once. So in the trash it went, along with a tear or two.
Do you all plan to wait a year to devour your cake? Or are you planning to eat it when you return from your honeymoon?
