John and I had such a good time on our anniversary ... we ate some yummy salad at Sweet Tomatoes -- where we had first date four years earlier -- toasted to some champagne given to us at our wedding reception and enjoyed some cake.
This is what our delicious and oh-so-cute wedding cake looked like one year ago ...
(I highly recommend our baker times a million -- Morning Star Cakes. We picked our cake just based on looks because we didn't have time to drive to San Luis Obispo for a cake-tasting and I decided to chose looks over taste because I thought all wedding cakes were just meh -- but it ended up being the yummiest wedding cake I've ever tasted. No joke. Oh, so good!)
And here's what the top we saved looked like Tuesday night.
Does anyone know the meaning behind the tradition of saving a piece of your wedding cake and eating it a year later? Because it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. It's like, congrats, you two lovebirds made it through the first year of marriage -- and as a reward, you get to eat some year-old cake! hahah. Oh wells, traditions are a nice thing.
You wanna see if we actually ate some of this freezer burned-goodness?
Well, after being inspired by shelikespurple wedding cake post, we made a little video for your viewing pleasure! Check it out! :)
Oh, and I can't explain why I start it off by saying "My name is Sarah." Um, duh! I think you should know by now my name is Sarah, unless you stumbled over to this blog by accident -- but then you should still notice the header at the top. Ha. I'm a big nerdface!
Did you save a piece of your wedding cake and eat it a year later or are you planning to? There's another tradition that if an unmarried person sleeps with a piece of a wedding cake under their pillow, they will dream of their future spouse that night. Or maybe they'll dream that their hair is now full of frosting. Hmmm.
