SATELLITE BEACH, Fla. – For the past 61 years, a Florida couple has marked their anniversary by eating a piece of their wedding cake.

Ann and Ken Fredricks of Satellite Beach, Florida got married on August 19, 1955. Every year since, they remember their wedding day by taking a bite of the fruit cake Ann’s mother made for their wedding.

“She made the cake, and it had to hang in their cellar in cheesecake bags to age, because it needs to start aging before you ice it,” Ann told WOFL.

Before eating the sweet treat, Ken douses the cake with a shot of brandy, to help soften it.

“It’s important to us, because it says we’re still together and glad of it,” said Ken.
