Wedding Cake from D’amico

Katie and I have been married over a month (almost 2), and we really couldn’t wait or take the risk that our wedding cake will last a year. So we have and will be eating some of that delicious cake once a month on the 17th until our anniversary.

If you’re looking to blow a lot of money on a wedding cake (or any festive cake). D’amico catering is the place to go. We had our wedding over a month ago on June 17th at the Metropolitan Ballroom and we had a delicious Indian dinner prepared for us. But the cake alone was phenomenal. They’ve got a set of standard cakes, and you can pretty much do whatever you want (seriously… you’re blowing lots of money), so we chose a raspberry devil’s food cake. One slight peeve we had with D’amico is that they disposed of a lot of the cake way too fast. So a lot of our family and friends who were dancing didn’t get to taste it.

As for the frozen cake… it thawed really fast, was a PITA to cut, but was still very delicious.

    Congratulations on your wedding – your cake is just gorgeous! It’s so cute that you celebrate your wedding a little each month.

    The baker who made my wedding cake last fall told me she couldn’t allow me to freeze the cake top because she finds the tradition of eating one-year-old cake “unsavory.” Instead, she instructed me to call her about a week in advance of my one year anniversary and she’ll make me a new 8″ cake for free! I know that’s bucking tradition, but hey, it’s free cake;)

    It’s hard to count something as tradition when it involves… technology like refrigeration ;)

    But Dave. . . .

    That tradition comes from British wedding cakes which are fruit cakes covered in almond paste. It doesn’t take much to “keep” some fruit cake- just poke some holes in it and liquor it up.

    In fact in British tradition on should start on one’s wedding cake a year before hand to get it properly drunken.

    My new husband and I couldn’t wait that long – we devoured any leftovers within the next few days. ;)

    Do I need to have a wedding to have that British wedding cake…?

    The Metropolitan is really nice. I’ve been to several ball/gala-type things there. I bet it was really nice for your wedding.
