How to Preserve the Top of the Wedding Cake for  Your One-Year Anniversay (plus our reception fun)

Another continuation of our wedding day. After we were hitched, it was time to celebrate with our friends and family.

Off to the reception! The venue was decorated stunningly. It was just what I had imagined. Fall colors everywhere, smell of spices, it was elegant and yet rustic. It defined my personality.

The DJ did just what I asked, I wanted old timey country music, and he found great selections. The type of music I listened to when I was a kid at the pond with my grandparents. I hated it then, but now it felt familiar and comforting.

Every once in a while, I will search for those old timers on the internet and just sit and be taken back to when I was a kid; my grandma sitting at the picnic table, my grandpa swaying to the music, my sister reading or writing about something and I catching newts and frogs. I miss those days.

The food was fantastic; we had buffet style, mostly because I like my food hot. Everything was delicious; lots of comfort foods like my mommy’s homemade macaroni and cheese, prime rib, chicken, pastas, all sorts of yummy things. My favorite part by far was the cake.

Oh. My. Goodness. That cake was delectable.

We had pumpkin spice cake with cream cheese frosting alternating with red velvet cake with buttercream frosting. We even saved the top for our one-year anniversary. It was still delicious!

The secret to how we kept the top tier good for a whole year was this:

1.       Wrap with plastic wrap three times.

2.       Wrap with aluminum foil three times.

3.       Place in a freezer bag.

4.       And freeze.

You wouldn’t have known that the cake was a year old. We ate all of it.

After the reception, we went to the hotel, changed and continued to party at the hotel’s bar.

We received a call from my friends that they were going to go to another bar close by, so we hopped in the car and had a few drinks with them. We didn’t get back until after 2:00 pm. Talk about a long day!

I do suggest putting together a brunch for the day after.

It was a lovely time to regroup and talk about the festivities that just happened. A lot of our family traveled for the occasion so it only seemed right to feed them before they left.

Absolutely hands down, the best part of my wedding was the cake, and marrying my best friend of course. This year marks our six-year anniversary, and thirteen years together. I couldn’t imagine taking on this crazy roller coaster ride with anyone else.
