This couple are still eating their wedding cake - 60 years after they married

This couple are still eating their wedding cake - 60 years after they married


Published 26th Aug 2015

Ann and Ken Fredericks have been enjoying their wedding cake for over six decades...

 

Tradition states a married couple will typically keep a tier of their wedding cake to be enjoyed on their first wedding anniversary, or at the christening of their first child. One couple, however, have taken it to a whole new level.

Ann and Ken Fredericks - who tied the knot in a New York celebration in 1955 - have revealed they are still eating their wedding cake, after 60 years of marriage.

The couple enjoy a piece of their wedding cake every year on their anniversary, when they each have a small piece of the dessert, along with a bottle of Champagne.

The dark fruit cake was baked by Ann's grandmother six decades ago - and according to the Fredericks, it still tastes absolutely fine.

Speaking to Florida Today, Ann revealed: "I have to say... it tastes a little dry but it takes like cake", adding: "A little bit of brandy never hurt anybody!"

Ken said: "Maybe that's the reason we've been around so long".

The couple also shared their secret for keeping the cake edible: they simply store it in a tin and keep it in their kitchen cupboard!
