@LaPetiote:  Oh cute! I think in the US the tradition is to save the top tier for your first anniversary. By then it’s usually fairly freezer burned as it is. I imagine fruit cake is about the only thing that would still taste good when the baptism rolls around!

@LaPetiote:  we’ll be lucky if our cake makes it through the flight to the honeymoon destination!

Never heard of this tradition – sounds like fun

Wow kudos to you for saving it that long!  What was left of the bottom tiers of our cake was finished the next day, and the day after that we took the huge top tier to a family gathering with 10 people and finished the whole thing.  If we had kept it for ourselves it might have last 3-4 days.

It’s tradition in the US to save your cake and eat it on your anniversary so I doubt anyone will be grossed out!

I could not WAIT to eat ours because I was so sick of it being in my freezer! The idea really grossed me out but, it turned out it wasn’t so bad. A bit dense but not bad.

@LaPetiote:  This is definitely a tradition that stems from Europe/England where it was traditional fruit cake so it would last a while. My baker in the US actually discourages this practice, because buttercream and regular cake does not freeze well.
