  • Wedding: March 2012 - Pelican Grand Beach Resort

The first time I got married, we did, and it was AMAZING. It was wrapped properly.

This time, we ate it on our one month anniversary. For one, the cake was not wrapped properly so we knew it wouldn’t last well. Also, the wedding was 5 hours from where we lived and we were also going to be moving during the summer and we didn’t know where (the town next door? a few states over? to anotehr continent? we really didn’t know yet) and we didn’t want to have to worry about moving a frozen cake. It was AMAZING.

greenidlady:  We did for my first marriage because we had fruit cake. That tradition started when wedding cake was fruit cake preserved by soaking it in brandy.

Nowadays , I would rather order  fresh cake from the bakery than eat cake that had been frozen for a year.

Our anniversary isn’t until august but we didn’t keep the cake. We got married out of the country and there was no way to bring it back with us!

Our cake comes with a small anniversary cake the year later, so we’ll have a fresh one!

We saved the top layer of our cake the night of the wedding, brought it home, and put it in the fridge. I had intended to freeze it, until the next day when my DH looked at me and said “Can I Just eat the cake now?”. Sure.

I just had our baker make us a fresh one on our anniversary. I intended for us to eat if after our dinner out. Yet again, my DH couldn’t stop himself and cut into it by lunchtime….lol.

We just saved one large piece and wrapped it really well (not enough freezer space for a whole tier!). It was carrot cake and surprisingly good still. Although DH thought it had gone bad because the frosting was yellow…I had to remind him of what our cake even looked like lol.

I’d never heard of this till now, interesting. Although, I don’t think I would be able to last a whole a year with a piece of cake staring back at me everytime I opened the fridge, I love me some cake *nom* *nom* *nom* *nom* *nom* lol

We are not saving the top layer.  We’re having a semi-destination wedding so there is really no way to save the top layer for the whole weekend before we go back home.  We are just going to have our baker make us another small cake on our 1 year anniversary.

We did.  But then again, the top layer of our cake was the traditional British fruit cake with marzipan and royal icing, not the traditional American sponge cake.  The thing had so much alcohol in it that I’m not sure freezing it was actually necessary.  LOL

We forgot about it. Almost four years later, it’s still sitting in the back of our freezer. I should probably throw it out at some point.

My father in law ate all our cake. We weren’t saving any anyway, then again when we had our wedding was six months after we got married, so we wouldn’t be having our “year anniversary” cake for another few months anyway. We weren’t going to drag it across the country with us.

We were flying back across the world a week after the wedding, and we certainly weren’t taking our soft, sensitive cake on an airplane, so we picked it up the next morning and me and my new husband and new in-laws all sat in one of their hotel rooms and ate it for breakfast. It was wonderful.

we’re having a traditional engilsh, alcohol-fed cake so it would keep for the year but we won’t be saving it. instead we’re using the top tier for our do at home (getting married at my parents’).
