Aging Cake

While I was busy whining yesterday, I completely forgot to mention the awesomest piece of having a 1-year anniversary. Namely: CAKE. We totally saved our top layer, and if you remember, our top layer was pretty awesome. Also: chocolate. Making it awesomer.

My parents deep froze the thing for us, and took it out a couple days ago to start the thawing process. When it arrived at our door on Tuesday, the cake was moist, the frosting was ooey-gooey, and I ate so much I get that little chestache thing that happens when you cram an entire week’s worth of sugar into one serving. Never fear, I am hard core, I drank some water and pushed through the heart palpitations and had another large slice.

I was sad to cut into it, this last, gorgeously detailed vestige of our wedding.

Then I tasted it and got over the whole nostalgic crap quite quickly. There are now only crumbs left.

Meanwhile I’m very excited for the new season of The Office to start. I’ve realized I’ve officially become Old, because I find myself thinking things like, “When I was young, there were so many more good shows on…” and also because I hurt my butt by sitting on a hard bench at a local elementary school this morning. I need cushions! Also: my husband tweaked his back by reaching for floss this morning.

(Sorry, baby, I’m not sure I was supposed to share that, but you didn’t specifically say I couldn’t, and it added to my point….)

I may go cane shopping this weekend. Damn kids.

I still am in awe over the cake. It sounds so yummily delish and like it was well-preserved.

I hear you on the old thing, chica. Pushing 30 is soooo hard, isn't it? Heee....

I'm a few days late in saying it but Happy Anniversary! That cake looks spectacular, really beautiful. Hey, if you had seen Avenue Q before you got married, would you have had dirty puppets on your cake? :-)
