Karen's notes: Thanks to everyone for the lovely anniversary wishes! Speaking of which, and in light of Adam's final sentiment last night: We did carry out the tradition of hauling our wedding cake out of the freezer, unwrapping the sixteen layers of saran wrap (cling film, Brits), and partaking of a slice each.

Now, in its heyday, our wedding cake was quite literally the most delicious thing I had ever consumed. It was red velvet cake with vanilla butter-cream frosting, and it was mind-blowing. But I'll tell ya, twelve months in the freezer didn't do it any favors. Of course, that didn't stop us from finishing our slices (or me from having a second slice).


  1. Karen, Adam: you are very brave individuals. 12 months in the freezer are enough to make me chuck whatever it is in the bin :).

    And I have to say the I like the new nuggets that are provided by STM's relationship (and yes, I believe we can call it a relationship now - I think he might actually count as a bigamist) with the gym. It's not so much "love-hate" as it is... I'm not sure, actually. Loathing-hate? Apathy-loathing-hate? Anyway, keep'em coming :)

  2. Happy belated Anniversary!!! Sorry, for some very strange reason I forgot to check this blog yesterday?!?!?

    Mmmmmm....cake!!! (Side Note: my brother and sister-in-law celebrated their 1 year on the 11th (yup, they got married on 7-11 lol) and they did that cake thing this like a tradition of newlyweds???)

    Anyhoo, oh nuts, I gotta go listen first...I'm sure it is LOL, but must have audio fix ;-)

  3. Okay...that last one is too freakin' hilarious...if I wasn't so dang self-conscious I'd soooooooooooo wear that!!!

  4. I totally agree: 12 months in the freezer doesn't do cakes any favors. By the first anniversary with my ex, our wedding cake was starting to go bad despite having been in the freezer. We couldn't eat it, so we took it outside and blew it up with fireworks.

  5. Jackie, you are my new idol, alongside STM, Superman and that guy who ate a plane.

    Seriously though: I love the fireworks idea!

  6. jackie, that is a totally awesome idea! - adam

  7. I would so love to use the first one on a guy who usually works with me but is currently away on other duties.

  8. Just a thought..... As I channel flick and see that Big Brother is on, wouldn't Adam have made one of the most entertaining Housemates ever?!?!? I suspect the rigours & unfamiliarity of being in the house would have sent his sleep talking to another level. No need for hours of just snoring!

  9. i have a confession, the eyes that were used in big brother 1 (uk) was my design!! and yes, i think being a guest contestant on it would be humorous.

  10. Defrosting and refreezing spoils everything. I live in a town that has intermittent electricity so I know...

  11. Voting for a work out shirt with this, "I'm taking my gluteus maximus to the max."

    Man, I could be your 1-woman advertising agent.

  12. My husband and I celebrated our 1 year last month, on the 20th. We could only take a bite each of our wedding cake as, despite being wrapped in who-knows how many layers of cling wrap, it tasted of nothing but freezer burn. So we each had our bite, then threw the rest out, lol. Happy belated anniversary!

  13. Hi! I am an avid reader of this blog and tell all my friends about it! Although its a day late, just wanted to wish you two a very happy 1 year anniversy and so many more!

  14. " . . . smell so bad and still be alive." That is a GREAT quote. I'll have to use it on the next stinker that i meet!

  15. That first quote would be very handy on a T-Shirt for use in the gym: it would alert the many Olfactory Offenders that congregate there. It's really hard to tell people they stink, but the T-Shirt could do it for me: kind of like a Corporate Downsizer that specializes in Body Order.

  16. I love that last one! I've got one for everybody that keeps telling me, "You should get in shape!".

    I tell them, "I am in shape! Round's a shape!

  17. Our cake was so sorely wounded by its twelve months in the freezer, that it got sent out to the creatures of the Earth who live around our cabin up here in The North Carolina Mountains.

    The Skunks would have nothing to do with it, and neither would our ever changing tribe of cats. The Raccoons, however thought it to be a new sort of sporting equipment, and played with for hours before they carried it up into the trees, and had their way with it!

  18. I hadn't heard of that particular tradition. Our wedding cake was so yummy that anything that hadn't been eaten, we took home and ate over the next week or so :P (Sachertorte rocks!)

    and mmmm, doughnuts...!

  19. "I'll forget you even existed the next time I see a doughnut."
    Hmm is it just me or does this remind you of a certain guy who has three hairs on his head? and I'm taking my gluteus maximus to the max, via the pub.

  20. For our wedding, we bought a sheet cake, and made a 3 tiered wedding cake pinata. We ate the sheet cake, and smashed the hell out of the pinata at our wedding, but for some reason the top tier remained intact. We saved that top tier and some of the candy from the pinata, and on our on year anniversary, we ate the candy. It was yummy!

  21. I feel STM has blessed us with three new workout shirts in one night! I would wear every single one of those to the gym!

    I also have a story about wedding cake...

    My In-Laws saved the top tier of our wedding cake for us. It was thrown into an ice chest (without any ice) and left for 24+ hours in a hot car. I told them at that point we didn't want it. But, being the pack rats that they are, they still to this day have it in their freezer. Our FOUR YEAR anniversary is in two days!!!! I don't know how to convince them we are NOT going to eat that vile piece of cake!

    Anyhow, I'm glad you enjoyed yours. Belated Happy Anniversary to you. :)

  22. you....... you FROZE your wedding cake? D: *horrified* i've never ever known anyone do that, who does that?!?!?? most people just cut it and serve it out at the reception, and guests eat it and its all jolly celebratoy! o_o

  23. Traditionally you are supposed to save the top layer of cake to eat at your first anniversary. I know most people here in the states do it. I wonder how the tradition got started in the first place though? Ours was wrapped in 3 layers of plastic wrap then put in a box. The box was wrapped in plastic and then inside a second box. And it turned out amazingly good. We ate the whole thing. Of course it wasn't a very big layer so that might be part of the key.

  24. Why not? I mean it was "Cake-o-clock all day long!"

  25. i thought you saved the top layer of the cake for your first childs christening?

  26. but i think that was back when wedding cakes were mainly fruit so would last well.

  27. I thought of Jennifer Lopez for that second quote. Hilarious! And I forget most everything when I see a donut, too. I blame my Dad for bringing my mom donuts every week when she was pregnant with me.

  28. Yeah, I'm taking my gluteus maximus to the max


  29. Lotsa balls there, "Anonymous" 02:50!

    I've had quite a bit of experience with sleep talking and walking. I'm a CNA, and It's kind of like my job!

    Adam shows all the classic symptoms of sleep talking. Right down to the classic unrelated relationship of his conscious actions, and his unconscious actions! Don't you think that if he was in control of his faculties, that he would be barking the manliest phrases imaginable? But no! Adam speaks of totally off the wall stuff in his sleep! All these things come out of his subconscious.

    Whereas, the only thing that YOU brought us today, you pulled out of your ass!

  30. Well said, stoney (though I assume you meant Anonymous 06:09). What's a CNA though?

  31. i hope you thawed the cake out at least!

  32. I looked this up because I'm OCD that way and curious so here's what I found out. It can also be for your first child's christening. Whichever came first. And, yes it was started when cakes were brandy soaked fruit cakes. But now people don't usually have children until much later and the tradition stuck even after cakes changed.

  33. Many bakeries here in California (I'm sure in other places too) have a policy that if you buy your wedding cake from them, on your one year anniversary they will give you a small round cake for free. I know it's breaking a little with tradition, but at least you don't have to eat freezer burned cake! Just my 2 cents...

  34. Ori, Oh yea! Now I see the time post is at the bottom! A CNA is a Certified Nurses Aid.

    Anonymous 5:02, No! Thank you!

  35. My bakery has the fresh anniversary cake policy as well. (I'm getting married very soon and just had the cake tasting.) Happy belated anniversary, Adam and Karen!

  36. I laughed out loud on the first one. I love how his tone of voice doesn't really match the sentence.
