happy (first) anniversary.....version 2.0

Tradition has it that you are supposed to keep the top layer of your wedding cake and eat it on your 1st anniversary. We saved that top layer all year. Wrapped in foil, it was a piece of our history that we wanted to hold on to. But at some point between Friday and Sunday, we decided that we actually wanted to live to see our 2nd anniversary and decided that it would be wiser to create a new tradition rather than eating a year old cake. So, it was out with the old and in with the new....
We decided to head out to Cocoa Locale. Everyone knows that we are the biggest fans of this quaint little shop. Montreal is full of gourmet patisseries, so we welcome any deviation from that. Cocoa Locale does not pretend to be pretentious or trendy, yet foodies flock to Parc Ave. just to taste their Valrhona Chai cupcake.

They also carry cakes made with fresh ingredients and local produce. We picked up a Lavender Vanilla cake....small enough for the 2 of us. This cake was the perfect substitute for our frozen, memory filled top tier.
This will be our new tradition.
I'll look forward to next year...
This is even worth the year of snoring I'll go through.
Ahh, how a cake makes everything perfect.
