cake unveiling

After DH and I left our wedding reception and took off on our honeymoon, my Mom took charge of the cake. She said she first froze the cake, then wrapped it up and put it in a box. It was in my mom's freezer for 6 months until christmas, after which we flew home with the cake. Ever since christmas, it has been in our freezer.

See the cake box.

The cake box took up a lot of space in our freezer. This is what our freezer looked like before taking the box out:

And this is what it looked like after removing the cake box:

These are the flowers and fruity chocolate candy DH gave me on our anniversary by the way:) The chocolate just so happens to be the same chocolate we served at our wedding open house in Los Altos (at the home of the lovely Rachel). YUM! What a nice husband I have!

Here is a step by step sequence of unwrapping the cake:

(Doesn't DH have manly hands?)

There were 5 layers of aluminum foil!

There were also 5 layers of plastic wrap. (good job Mom!)

This is us cutting the cake. Taking a self portrait is difficult sometimes..(note DH's head is cut off..whoops)

And then we ate cake. It was so moist and good! It was the best lemon cake I've ever had. We were wishing we'd had a chocolate cake instead of lemon, but we should have thought of that when we ordered the cake! Our original cake had 3 tiers. Carrot, chocolate, and lemon. We didn't get to eat much wedding cake on the day of our wedding, so it was nice to finally have the time to do it:)

See the cake box. Box, cake, box!
See the cake box King Hippo. See the cake win. Win, cake, win!
See the cake box Mike Tyson. See Mike Tyson try to bite the cake. See the cake run. Run, cake, run!
See the cake in the rain. See the cake melt. Melt, cake, melt!

I love you DH. "And I'll never have that recipe again" either.

Rachel said...

First of all, good job on the reference. Secondly, that is one clever mommy you have. My mom would probably just throw it in a paper sack and be done with it.

Juliana said...

Yes, we have the wisest and kindest mommy of them all.

Thank you for the kind words. I've had some practice; this is about the 4th wedding cake to have been stored in our freezer (I've lost count). Truely, the buttercream frosting is a major factor; nothing can get through that. But the Norwegian marzipan cake was a disaster because of the whipped cream. You chose the perfect cake for a first anniversary!

I love the photos!

So long, and thanks for all the fish.
