Happy three-monthiversary!

Yes, it’s been three months–one quarter of a year–since Rand and I said those magic words to each other. I can’t believe it’s only been three months, because it already feels like we’ve been together our whole lives!

I’ve been meaning to post these pictures since the first month…instead of saving our entire cake top for the 1-year anniversary, we cut our cake top into twelve slices and froze each one individually.

I wrapped each one in plastic wrap and then put them inside Gladware. Here they are, stacked in the freezer:

So, on the 12th of each month, we will thaw out a piece of cake and enjoy! It just made more sense to us to eat the cake gradually than a) try to keep that whole cake top in our freezer for a year, and b) probably end up wasting a bunch of cake anyway.

Mmmm….freezer cake. 😀

I love that we’ve already created our own little tradition!

Let them eat cake

I ordered a cake today.

There’s this lovely little dessert shop called Village Desserts that’s in my neighborhood. When I saw their $99 cake special advertised in the window, I knew I had to check it out.

It’s a 3-tier cake that serves about 100. (We’ll need more cake than that…we’ll either be ordering sheet cakes or pursuing this decorate-your-own-cupcake option we’ve been talking about…) It’s round, with buttercream frosting. I’m fine with all that.

I didn’t have something specific in mind, so I took a look at their sample cakes.

The second one in (with the ribbon and flowers) is my current favorite.

(cake #1) 

I’d provide ribbon in whatever color I want, and talk to my florist about flowers. I don’t necessarily like the “swag” flower look. I’d probably go with something more like this:

This is more the look I’d want to go for with the flowers. I like the design too…that one’s my second favorite.

I put the order in for cake #1 (white cake with chocolate ganache filling), but I have time to change my mind. What do you think?
