Not So Sweet Tradition

Did you eat your cake on your one-year anniversary?

-Julie Ryan Evans

When you get married, you get to have your cake and eat it too…one year later. Or so the tradition goes.

Due to the logistics of where we held our wedding (Nebraska) and where we lived at the time (Boston) and where we moved just weeks later (Austin) we didn’t end up getting to test out our wedding cake on our first anniversary-it got lost somewhere along the way. And, honestly, as romantic as he is, there’s NO way my husband would have even considered tasting it. Me? I don’t turn down frosting in any form.

But it turns out we didn’t miss out on much.

Apparently, that tradition kind of sucks and so does the cake after 12 months. Check out this video by one of our favorite bloggers—Jenny.

So while www.consciousweddings.com says this tradition is “a way to bring the year into the body, come full circle, and complete a process that began with the engagement,” it seems in this case, traditions are made to be broken…or to be partaken of only by those with strong stomachs.

Did you eat your year-old wedding cake on your first anniversary? Does anyone have any tips for preserving it so it does taste good?bT_icon_16x16_trans.gif
