Wordless Wednesday Anniversary

October is the new June, which means many newlyweds are celebrating their first wedding anniversary this month. The first anniversary is particularly special and has its own traditions. Many Americans freeze the top of their wedding cakes and eat it on their first anniversary. Most people tell me the taste is not the greatest, but it's a reminder of the celebration from the year before.
In fact, the cake in the photo above is the one from the vow renewal that my husband and I celebrated in the United States after getting married in Italy. I was planning to freeze the top of our cake and eat it on Nov. 29, the anniversary of our vow renewal, but the restaurant forgot to give it to us. As a result, I'm ordering a small cake from the bakery that made this one for us. Frankly, I just like any tradition that has you eating yummy cake. Did you eat your cake on your anniversary? Do you plan to eat it?
