the traveling cake
one year and ten days ago charlie and i had the most wonderful wedding that could have existed (to us at least). we were so blessed to have so many friends and family there-thank you if you were able to make it! we also hope you remember eating some of our wedding cake. charlie had a "guinness" cake (that he didnt even get to eat) and i had a triple tier cake. the bottom layer was strawberry and the middle layer was some sort of orange rum cream or something. i dont really remember, but i do remember them being awesome. but of course we saved the top for ourselves. it was mint chocolate. yuuummmyyy!!
after the wedding my maid of honor, lindsey, took possession of the cake and it lived in the freezer in my old basement for a few months. then when she moved out, instead of chucking it away, she packed it up and took it to live in her parents house for a few months. THEN the boyds decided to take a summer trip to florida and of course lindsey wanted to hang out so she brought it to panama city. when we left, we packed up our two dogs and "frozen" cake and made the trek back to texas. lo and behold where did we decided to be during our anniversary? florida. so we packed it up and drove it BACK to florida. i calculate roughly 2038 miles that poor cake survived on top of multiple freezing/thawing episodes. and still came out amazing! i wouldnt recommend fifteen layers of aluminum foil (steph and linds you did a great job) as the best means of preservation. but i do recommend partaking in this tradition-it was super fun.
