Today is officially our 1-year wedding anniversary! Happy anniversary to us!
I saved the best recap for last: wedding cake!
I absolutely loved our wedding cake! It had 4 layers, each with a different cake + frosting combination:
- Top layer: Carrot Cake (of course!)
- 2nd layer: White cake with vanilla and mocha buttercream filling
- 3rd layer: Chocolate cake with hazelnut buttercream and chocolate truffle filling
- Bottom layer: Lemon-Strawberry cake combo
Mal and I didn’t smash cake into each other’s faces like some couples, but cutting the cake at our reception was really fun!
We didn’t arrive home from our trip until late tonight, but it didn’t stop me from digging into the top layer of our wedding cake. (We put it in the fridge to defrost over the weekend.)
In keeping with tradition, we froze the top layer of our wedding cake to eat on our 1st wedding anniversary.
Mal’s step-mom wrapped it up good and tight last July 12th!
After unwrapping the top layer, our wedding cake looked a little beat-up, especially after being wrapped a million times in plastic wrap and stored in our freezer for a year.
Cutting our wedding cake for the second time!
I was so worried that our cake would have freezer burn and taste bad, but it didn’t at all! It was SO GOOD!
The actual carrot cake was surprisingly soft and moist. Holy yum!
Mal and I each had a piece of cake and chatted about our first year of marriage. It was such a wonderful way to spend the last couple of hours of our anniversary.
