Happy Anniversary to Us!

Besides being a bit busy with my business, I was absent last week because it was our first wedding anniversary! Tim and I went away for the weekend and had a blast. I'll post some travel photos to my photography blog later on, but I just wanted to post the food-related portion of our anniversary celebration here :).

Our wedding was awesome - we loved everything about it. We spent a long time planning everything and had a great time. I can't believe a year has passed already. One thing that we didn't do, that Tim secretly wanted to do (or not so secretly) was smash the cake on each other. At the wedding, we fed the cake to each other like normal, sorta joked about the smashing part but didn't do it. Well, last weekend we shot a wedding in New Jersey (it was awesome!) and the couple totally reinspired the cake smashing - see what I mean here. It was hilarious. So, in honor of our first anniversary, we went for it!

Here is a picture of our wedding cake and a funny one of us from the wedding (photo credit: the fabulous Zlatko Batistich):

We defrosted the top of our cake from last year and here is what it looks like now - pretty sad, huh? It wasn't really wrapped that well and it totally got smushed in our freezer during the year, but it still tasted pretty good.

I wasn't sure of how the cake would taste a year later so, to celebrate our anniversary, I ordered a mini-version of our wedding cake. So cute.

Ok, lastly, here is what we look like during (Tim) and after (me) our cake battle.

It was ridiculously fun. Not that fun to clean up afterwards - I never though about how greasy buttercream would be...but it was definitely worth it to smush a giant piece of cake in Tim's face!!! When do you ever get to do that? By the way, we didn't smash the whole cake :), we had plenty left over for eating.

Greasy, yet delicious.

what a great idea to save the cake smashing for the anniversary! we didn't smash at our wedding either, so I may have to borrow your idea :)

After we smashed each other I went over to the banquet manager at Urie's who then said (with a smirk) "Be casreful, don't slip, some jerks just got cake all over the floor."

You guys look like you really got in the spirit! Happy Anniversary!

Thanks guys for all the super nice comments! I think we are going to do it every year, it was so funy. Totally like a food fight in elementary school :)

Thanks for inspiring us Cass!
