    No, we did not save a tier of cake.

    Whatever was leftover was picked up by my sister the next day (we had left for the honeymoon) and she delivered it to my elderly aunt and her caregiver who were unable to attend. They loved it.

    I like your idea to make the cake stretch–we did save the top tier for a whole year to eat on our 1st anniversary.

    We wrapped it very carefully, exactly according to instructions.

    It was disgusting.  Really, really disgusting.  I would have been much happier with a fresh cake.

    We didn’t save it purposely, but we had a lot left over, including the top tier, so we did bring it out again at the day after brunch.

    We are eloping in Jamiaca.  I have no intention of trying to bring any of that cake back home.  😉

    I’ve been married twice. The first time, we saved the top tier until our 1 year anniversary. It was wrapped up properly by the hotel, we defrosted it according to the directions, and honestly, it was DELICIOUS.

    This time, we had some logistaical issues with the cake. We got married where we both grew up, 5 hours from where we lived, and knew we’d be moving over the summer, but we didn’t know where in the US we’d be going since I was still mid-job search. We didn’t want to deal with moving a frozen cake first to home and then to who-knows-where, so we left it at my Mom’s and then ate about a month later when we were home for another event. It was great. We would’ve kept it for the whole year if we were somewhere permanent.

    Our baker (and it seems that this is becoming the norm) bakes her couples a cake the size of a top tier for their anniversary that matches the cake they had.

    I have been making a little something for our monthy- verseries.  Last month I made a cake, the month before I was supper busy and bought a half dozen cupecakes.  I plan on doing so each month until our first aniversery.  I like the idea of having the top tier re-made, or maybe just going to a good baker and having a small cake made.  

    We served our leftover cake at our brunch, gave some to some people who had to leave early and couldn’t stay for cake because of baby issues, ate some more (it was yummy), then Darling Husband took the rest to work…  (we had a lot leftover!)

    No. My baker will make us a small version of our wedding cake for our one year anniversary. It’s included with purchase of wedding cake!

    no, instead of a whole tier, we are just planning on saving two pieces to eat on our one-year anniversary.

    We are planning to save the top tier, but he will be deployed when our first anniversary happens, so…idk, I guess maybe we’ll eat it right before he deploys.  Also, our wedding is in FL, and we live in VA, so transport will be tricky.  Maybe I will leave it at my mom’s house and we can have it when we visit before he leaves.  Sigh, more things to think about!
