Ann and Ken Fredericks of Satellite Beach, both in their 80s, marked their 60th anniversary on Aug. 19th. The Fredricks say a little brandy on the cake moistens it and makes it fine to eat, Florida Today reports. 

The Fredericks told Florida Today that they keep their wedding cake in a metal coffee tin and wrapped in Saran. As for their children, "they won't taste it," Ken said to Florida Today.

"We tell them, it tastes fine," Ann said. "They always say, 'Oh, there's not that much. You two keep it for yourself.' I don't know, we may have to be buried with it."

Their cake is now 4-by-3 inches, and is back in Saran until next year, according to Florida Today.
