Couple still eating original wedding cake on 60th anniversary

It's a tradition for couples to save their wedding cake and eat it on their one year anniversary but a Florida couple has managed to keep the tradition going for 60 years.

Ann and Ken Fredericks have had a bite of their wedding cake every year since getting married back on August 19, 1955 in New York.

Ann says her grandmother made the cake which is a dark fruitcake. The couple says they keep the cake wrapped up in a tightly sealed coffee tin that stays in a cupboard above their refrigerator.

Ken and Ann say each year they have a little piece with some champagne.

They admit it's a bit dry but they pour some brandy over it to keep it moist.
