Chris and I celebrated our one year anniversary on March 12th! We took the day off work, and had a wonderful day… it was like a Saturday just for ourselves! We were reminded of how delicious our wedding cake was when we picked up our complimentary 7-inch cake from Edibles Incredible to celebrate. Isn’t that wonderful? Instead of freezing some of the actual wedding cake, Edibles includes a gift of a fresh cake on your anniversary day. We told them over the phone that two slices would be just fine, but they insisted on putting together a whole cake for us!

For our reception, we went with multiple cakes instead of a traditional wedding cake. Edibles wasn’t outrageously priced; we just wanted to leave room in the budget for a gelato station. (Plus it was fun to collect all of the cake stands and cake toppers!) I’ll leave Pitango Gelato for another post. All I’ll say now is that Chris & I went to Italy for our honeymoon, and Pitango easily lives up to the authentic gelato we had there.
Our cakes were a mixture of Chocolate Mousse and Lemon Sorbet, the two most popular cake choices. We never would have expected we’d choose Lemon Sorbet as a flavor, but their take on it is truly divine. I definitey think Edibles Incredible is the cake shop of cake shops in Northern VA. When you meet with Alan for a tasting, he’ll tell you, without reservation, about all of the TV shows he’s been on and the awards that he’s won. You might be a little skeptical at first, but when you taste the cake, you’ll understand!
I brought home slices from the tasting — yes, they give you whole slices — and left a Chocolate Mousse one on my kitchen counter. My roommate at the time, Abigail, tried some days later, and begged me to choose Edibles as a result. It’s true. Old cake from Edibles was still better than every other cake we’d ever had!
The mini cake they made us for our anniversary was so adorable and delicious. It was a lemon sorbet cake, with green icing for the month of March. Thank you, Edibles Incredible, for making our wedding and anniversary so special!
