One of the highlights of a one-year anniversary, if you ask me, is eating the top layer of your wedding cake. I know it sounds gross.... one-year old cake and frosting? Frozen? Ick. But there are super detailed instructions online that my lovely mother followed to a T. She even hauled the cake in a cooler when she and Dad came up to see the Crookers in July. Marilyn housed it in her extra freezer, and we obtained the blessed pastry on Saturday. We put it in the fridge overnight, and let it sit on the counter beginning Sunday afternoon. It looked pretty good! But how would it taste?!
After we returned from from a lovely dinner at Taughannock Farms Inn, which last night provided a gorgeous view of Cayuga Lake and the trees just starting to change colors, we took the plunge. My fingers were crossed, as I had no backup plan for dessert.
Ladies and gentlemen, I am pleased to report that Kiedrowski's cake freezes and thaws like a dream. I am a proponent of properly freezing one's wedding cake to enjoy the following year. The cake maybe didn't taste as good as it did the day it was baked, but it was really good! The sparkling wine didn't hurt, either.
