You don’t. That is an old old custom when wedding cakes were mostly dense fruit cakes and froze well. If its like American sponge cake, you just don’t, as it does not freeze well. I know our baker offers a free anniversary cake every year. Ask yours if that is an option.

This is something my MIL asked and I had to tell her it is an old tradition that we would not be participating in. Cake is not going to freeze well. Her husband had to agree that theirs did not taste well after a year. Hopefully you can find a baker that offers a 1st anniversary cake or just purchase a small one for your anniversary.

I had chocolate cake & it froze fine & tasted delicious 1 year later.

 

Wrap the cake in 2 layers if plastic wrap, then a layer of tinfoil. Place it in the back of your fridge freezer or in a deep freeze.

FutureMrsLarson:  Nope, just the plastic wrap and tinfoil. It was a chocolate cake with fondant and buttercream. It was seriously so tasty, even a year later.. I figured it would be dry and freezerburnt..but nope! SO yummy!
