how does the cake taste after 1 year?
HEY WBC LADIES!
I was just wondering if anyone has had their cake yet after 1 year. My brother and sister in law got married Oct 3, 2009 and their one year is coming up quickly. Well, i have the cake stored in my freezer; and im debating if i should have a back up plan.
I was gonna go to Jewel and get a little cake made like their cake they had at the their wedding. something fresh b/c too me eating year old cake is nasty. Chris and I are throwing them a surprise 1 year party. So should i get them a small cake and have a plan B?
We will def be looking at the cake and maybe taking tiny tiny tiny bites out of it, but i dont know if it will be great tasting. It worries me. LOL
October 16 2011 Mr and Mrs Sparks will be Honeymooning in the Eastern Caribbean of St. Lucia. IM SOOOO EXCITED. :)
planning the perfect honeymoon
Sports & Activities we will be doing!!
* PARA SAILING
* leisurely walks
* strenuous hikes
* Whale and dolphin watching
the walks and hikes sound amazing if we will be seeing this..
The island’s landscape is quite mountainous, and the interior rises to almost 1,800 feet above sea level. The 19,000 acres of inland rain forest include 29 miles of trails, and it is home to rare birds and plants.
*** hell yeah johnny deep was on this ship. im soooo there***
Cruise on the Brig Unicorn Sailing Ship: a stunning ship that was apparently used in the filming of Pirates of the Caribbean. Take a cruise at sunset and enjoy the gorgeous vistas and the steel band playing on board, which gives the cruise a really authentic Caribbean falvour.
Rain forest Sky Tram: The sky tram is like an open-air cable car, above the rainforest. The views are amazing and it's definitely an experience like no other; even if you tend to have a problem with heights you will probably still love it!
Mamiku Gardens: a welcome change to all the more adventurous excursions. The gardens are beautiful and really nice to have an amble around.
Mamiku Gardens, approximately 22 acres in area is a sub-division of the original 400- acre Mamiku Estate located at Micoud on the eastern coast of Saint Lucia. When asked about the origin of the strange sounding name, the Shillington-Smiths who are the present owners of the estate gave this explanation. The estate was owned by Baron de Micoud who was a Governor of the island during one of its many occupations by the French. When the Governor realized that the English had re-captured the island, he willed the property to his wife who was a Saint Lucian, knowing that according to British law the property could not be taken away from her. Mrs. de Micoud was called Ma Micoud by the locals, and gradually the estate was referred to in Kweyol as “Plantasyon Ma Miku” until it was simply called Mamiku – a name that has survived long after her death.
Mamiku Gardens was opened to the public in 1998 and has been designed for the nature lover who enjoys hiking in the woods. There are over 400 flowers and trees together with a special garden of traditional medicinal herbs to be seen and admired along a trail that may sometimes be a little challenging. However, there are wooden benches erected along the trail to take the strain off tired feet and as havens to reflect on the serenity of the surroundings.
The place of Mamiku Estate in Saint Lucia’s history has been cemented by the tangible evidence that has been unearthed during the ongoing archaeological dig that is being conducted. The artifacts that have been gathered from the excavations have been attractively displayed in a small interpretation centre. Other physical structures such as the foundations of some of the buildings that were erected during the days of slavery can be easily detected, so that one is able to re-construct the layout of the plantation.
Pictures may be worth a thousand words but these pictures do not tell the complete story about the estate. A visit to the gardens will rejuvenate the body and mind as the different smells and sights are absorbed through the senses and one is given a new lease on life.
