Yesterday was a momentous occasion for the Deviled Eggs—we celebrated our first wedding anniversary! We’ve been through a lot in the last year. But no matter what life gave us, we took each challenge as an opportunity to grow together in love and as a couple. We celebrated the day by enjoying a fancy dinner in the ”˜Burgh and then went home to enjoy the top tier of our wedding cake.
But for those of you who remember my DIY wedding cake, the top tier wasn’t real. It was just a decorated cake dummy. In order for us to do the traditional wedding cake sampling on our anniversary, I had to make a replica of our cake as a substitute for the fake one.
Here’s how it turned out:

And, for comparison sake, a shot of the original:
At the request of Mr. DE, the anniversary cake was fondant-covered carrot cake with cream cheese frosting and filling. It was yummy! I tweaked the recipe I’ve used in the past and swapped out some of the fresh grated carrots for a few jars of carrot baby food. This intensified the flavor and made it very moist. I was really impressed with how it tasted.
I know some couples enjoy eating their frozen tier, but fresh-baked cake is better than frozen any day. Ours was delicious!
What are your thoughts on eating your top tier on your anniversary? For those of you who ate a frozen cake, was it any good?
