Helloooo blogging world! First of all, I am so sorry for my accidental extended absence! Mike and I were in the Northeast for two weeks for an array of things: Cooperstown Induction, Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden, my sister-in-law's wedding(!!!!), so much family time, and a short trip to Boston to pick up our anniversary cake! Our amazing wedding cake baker offers free anniversary cakes that mirror the top tier of your wedding cake if you send them a professional photo of the whole cake from the wedding. Pretty sweet deal, right?! Well, now living 1,000 miles from that baker, it took us a while to redeem our certificate, but we finally did last week!
Here's my original wedding cake post, if you're curious! We chose three different types of cake for our real wedding cake: lemon and buttercream, chocolate and chocolate mousse, and vanilla with strawberry mousse. Then, with the top tier, we told the bakers to surprise us. They knew what we liked from the tasting and what typically freezes well - the store manager immediately knew what she wanted to do. Well, 15 months later, when we were on a weekend trip to New England (we froze the top tier in Mike's dad's freezer), we thawed it and enjoyed it. We were a little confused when we unwrapped it and saw a blue and red dot, "did we not wrap it well enough??" "is that mold?" NOPE - it was funfetti! How great of a surprise is that?!
I cannot wait to share all about what we've been up to in the coming days as well as more about my sister-in-law and new brother-in-law's wedding, but in the meantime, here's a photo of their beautiful cake!
