the wedding cake

Contribution for GBE2: Blog On prompt: in the freezer

Long ago.

After our vows had been read, the food eaten, and the party died down, Rudy and I carefully placed the top tier of our wedding cake in the freezer.

The idea was to save it, keep it frozen-fresh, for the first year of our marriage.

Then on December 28th, on our one year anniversary, we’d remove the vanilla-frosted spice cake from its frozen world, thaw it, and devour a year’s worth of memories.

We’d celebrate our ups, reflect on the downs.

Happy Anniversary we told each other as we dug our forks into the should-be moist cake.

Blech we both announced, tossing the rock-hard, lost its flavor, small, circular dessert in the trash.
