Yesterday was our anniversary and we ate the 3 year old top of our wedding cake. It was stale good. As stale as a frostbitten kransekake gets in three years but as tasty as sugar and almond always is. You can see in the photo that we pulled 12 rings off of the top. You know what that means (if you don’t: legend says that a couple will parent as many children as the number of rings that come off the top of the cake). My mom frosted the cake so we accused her of rigging the frosting up to break at that point and she admitted that she did rig it but not for that many rings. In any case we don’t have 12 kids yet..
Of course we didn’t have just one cake at our wedding, we had another cake, a number of tortes and other deserts too. I made the kransekake and Lars made all of the wonderful tortes. We like our sweets.
We are visiting my parent’s this weekend, which is why we finally ate the cake out of their freezer. Not a romantic weekend, but we are taking another vacation next month to celebrate our anniversary (when we could get the reservation to an old guard station cabin).
Today we went to The Scoop and had some yummy Brain Freeze ice cream. We sat outside and enjoyed our “high fat, high quality” creamy goodness and watched people walking by (yes, some people in Spokane do walk) and a dog sitting by the table next to us and it felt like Portland. It was maybe the best ice cream we have ever had, and we have eaten a lot of ice cream.
