I'm the type who always checks expiration dates on food, and won't eat things that are expired for a day. So, the fact that I was willing to eat our wedding cake one year later, it's surprising. Oh, the things I'll do for wedding traditions!
After a romantic dinner at Pomodoro in Boston's North End, we walked home and it was officially cake time. I started thinking back to what our gorgeous cake looked like one year ago, and thought about our reception, and how delicious our Strawberry Grand Marnier Cake was on the night of our wedding.

Then, we finally unwrapped it, and this is what it looked like. I didn't see mold or anything out of the ordinary, so I cut off the edges (just in case!), we both took a fork, did a little fork toast, and we ate one year old cake.
Well, more like one small bite of one year old cake. We tasted cake. We tasted strawberries. We tasted a hint of Grand Marnier. But, one bite of really old cake was enough for us... and the rest of the cake went into the trash. Was it worth it to keep the cake and lose one fifth of our freezer space for an entire year? Of course! After all, what are traditions for?
