Happy Anniversary to US!

It's our 3rd wedding anniversary today, which seems crazy for so many reasons. Time has flown by, and I can't believe that it's been 3 years since the big day. Thanks to everyone that has sent their congratulations!

Just for posterity's sake, here's a look at our 1st, and 2nd anniversaries.

This anniversary promises to be just as awesome.

For this anniversary, I know that either leather or crystal is the customary gift, but I decided to go with CAKE! Jason has two favourite cakes, one of which is McCain's Deep'n'Delicious, so ... a home-made version of a Deep'n'Delicious cake was my project for the day!

He decided he wanted vanilla, so I found the following recipes ...

Butter Cake from Epicurious
Best Buttercream Frosting from All Recipes

And ... here's the result!

Not the most pro icing job, but I think it looks decent enough to eat. That buttercream frosting is to DIE for, by the way. Not exactly calorie light, but guilt-free enough in small quantities (in my opinion, and I'm sticking to it), hence no icing on the sides.

We haven't cut into it yet, but the cake smelled heavenly when it was baking ... mmmmm ... cake.

Not exactly the beautiful creation that we had on our wedding day, but hopefully it tastes as good ... our wedding cake was AWESOMELY tasty. Ahhh memories ... here's a look at the cake we had 3 years ago today:

** UPDATE **
Went to the Keg for dinner (Thanks Auntie La), and it was so yummy. Had a real date night. When we finally sliced into the cake, it was much more dense than I was expecting, like pound cake, but was so delicious that I almost cried ... ahahahahaha. It would be good layered with some kind of custard in there .... mmmmm .... custard.

Not even at all. It was really dense. Still yummy, but not at all like McCain cake. Sigh.
