Traditionally, couples freeze their wedding cake for a year and eat it on their one-year anniversary. It symbolizes good luck and a long life together. I got married on April 2, 2016. Flour Child Bakery in Virginia Beach made our cake pictured above. The cream cheese filled chocolate cake with buttercream icing excited my palate with sweet flavors. The groom and I received raved reviews from our guests. We, too, agree that the moist cake tasted amazing - all the more reason to eat it before our one year anniversary. I have listed 5 more reasons why I'm eating the wedding cake now instead of later.
1. Cake doesn't last a year in my house.
2. I keep imagining the wedding cake tasting the way the freezer smells overtime.
3. I plan to purchase a fresh cake for our one-year anniversary.
4. It makes a great dessert when relaxing after the honeymoon and opening wedding gifts.
5. Life is too short, eat wedding cake now!
