100-Year-Old Piece Of Wedding Cake Found In Attic


Good morning, I'm Linda Wertheimer. It's a tradition, couples saving the top layer of their wedding cake to share on their first anniversary - but for 100 years? Ron Warninger of Yakima, Wash. recently discovered part of his grandparents' wedding cake saved since 1915. It was in a hat box in the attic. Warninger says the fancy, white icing looks amazing for its age, but it could be a difficult chew because it's petrified. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.

We've corrected the mistake that was in the headline and URL of this story. The cake was found in an "attic," not an "attack."
