Woman Finds Tier of Cake From Her 1968 Wedding in Her Freezer & Will Eat It

A British Columbia woman was doing a deep clean of her freezer last week when she unearthed a souvenir from her 1968 wedding...a tier of their wedding cake.

Rochelle Marr said the cake has stayed rock hard in a "succession of freezers" over the past 55 years and it was buried so deep that she had completely forgotten about it.

The wedding cake was a fruitcake which was made by the mother of one of her bridesmaids.

She explained that her intention had been to experience a little wedding nostalgia by eating the cake with her husband, Brian Marr, on their 50th anniversary in 2018, however, in 2018, the couple had long forgotten the plan by that point and, sadly, Brian died in June of 2023.

When Rochelle's son Travis spotted the cake in the bottom of the freezer last week, he encouraged his mother to unwrap the cake. They peeled off the decades-old aluminum foil and thawed it out.

Rochelle said the confection has fared well during its long storage in the depths of the freezer. "It looks really good and it smells delicious," Rochelle said.

Now, she plans to make good on her long-ago promise and enjoy the vintage cake with her son and his siblings and their families the next time they are all together.

Her son said he's not worried about eating the cake because he read that the oldest one is about 161 years old.

A food safety expert confirmed to the outlet that the high alcohol, sugar and fat content of the cake, along with the fact that it's been frozen all this time, likely prevented any microbial growth that could cause illness.

To give the cake a little panache, Rochelle plans to add some icing for the special occasion.
