1 Year Wedding Anniversary! :)

If you're not into mush and gush and a whole lot of soppiness then look away now...abort post, abort post!!! :p

Today is 1 year since my husband, Chris, and I got married. I know it sounds somewhat cheesy and cliché to say I can't believe it's been a year already, but honestly, I really can't. I know we say it every year when it comes to Christmas, like where has the year gone and it flew by, but this somehow feels different, I truly can't quite believe this time last year we were stood on St Petersburg beach saying 'I do'. :) We have experienced so much in the past year, learnt a lot about each other and been there for each other in every way. We've accomplished goals together and supported each other and comforted each other each day, we've laughed, we've cried, we've been on countless road trips and adventures, we've settled into cozy routines and worked together to face new situations and every single second of it has felt magical.

When I first met Chris, 6-7 years ago, I had no idea of the journey we would go on or where it would take us, all I knew is that I had met my best friend and soul mate. During the past 7 years he has listened to me, given me advice after advice, looked out for me, guided me, encouraged me to brave the world, believe in myself and have the confidence to grow as a person. He's made me laugh and quite literally kicked my ass ( :p ) he's taught me so much in the wrestling world and tons outside of it, he's introduced me to my favourite musicians and opened my eyes to the world around me. Since we got married, he hasn't changed and still continues to be all that he was before, my best friend and other (other) half (after Kelly :p) but also, so much more. I know it's hard to believe that he could get more awesome but he just can't seem to help it! :p He is one simply amazing husband, throw in everything above and add the fact that he is unbelievably caring and kind, always considerate and sweet, takes such good care of me and has the passion to provide and put something bigger before him, that and he will watch all 5 seasons of Chuck and Tangled with me over and over again...yep, he is incredible and I am one extremely lucky girl! :)

My world is simply tons of fun and just seems completely, 110% right when he's in it! :)

On our wedding day we had the most delicious and prettiest cake from Sweet Tweets Cakery, you can find them on Tweeter here: @SweetTweetsCake We had kept the top of the cake for today, however, it is in Virginia with our family, we couldn't bring it back from Florida on the plane so my brother in law's Mom took it back home with her as she was driving, thank you Michele! :) I still wanted us to be able to have a treat on our special day, so I set about seeing if I could replicate our white cake with raspberry and buttercream filling with coral buttercream frosting! :)

This was our cake from Sweet Tweets Cakery!


 
 
And this is what I created! :)
 

 
 
I used this recipe that I found on Pinterest! :)
 
What you will need:
 
6 egg whites
2 tsp almond essence
4 tsp baking powder
2 1/4 cups of cake flour
1 3/4 cups sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 sticks butter
1 cup milk
 
Pre heat the oven to 350 degrees
 
Make sure your eggs and milk are at room temperature.
 
Pour milk, egg whites and extracts into medium bowl and mix with a fork until blended.
 
Mix cake flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in bowl with electric mix. Add butter cut into cubes and beat on low.
 
Add all but 1/2 of the milk mixture to the flour mixture and beat. Add remaining milk mix and beat until incorporated.
 
Bake for 27-30 mins.
 
Buttercream
 
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup icing sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla.
 
Once cakes are cooled, spread one layer with raspberry jam and the other layer with buttercream and stack them!
 
I made another batch of buttercream and mixed red and yellow food colouring to get the beautiful Coral colour. :)
 
It was tricky to make the flowers but lots of fun trying.
 
Thank you to Sweet Tweets Cakery for making our wedding day so wonderful and our cake so awesome! :) I didn't quite get the cake as perfect and scrumptious as yours but I was rather pleased with it, we had a slice for breakfast this morning and it turned out pretty yummy! :)
 
Hope everyone has a lovely Sunday!
 
Love Lulu. xx
