MexiPino:  We kept ours, each took a bite, and spit it out. Super gross and not worth the freezer space.

We did!!!! Our first anniversary is this coming Saturday. I guess we’ll see how this works out…hahahaha! I figured we’d just take a bite and toss it.

We did. Luckily I had enough forethought to also reorder the top tier of our cake for our first anniversary. We let it thaw, each took a small bite, and spit it out. It literally tasted like “freezer”. We sealed it up pretty well too. The remade tier was amazing though! I plan on buying it for our anniversary every year. It was $30.

Yep. I did that in my first marriage. It was horrid, even though we wrapped it and wrapped it. I think I’ll just have a new one made a year after this wedding.

Ours is in my MIL’s freezer wrapped in plastic wrap.  We’ll see how that works out.  My brother and his wife froze their top tier and left it in her parents’ freezer because they moved to Virginia right after their wedding.  (We are from NY.)  They forgot about it for years and randomly decided to try it for their FIVE year anniversary.  It was good for a laugh, at least.  No one died of food poisoning or anything, so I suppose it was a success… lol

We haven’t been married long, but our baker gave us a little mini-cake that is cutely decorated and says “Mr and Mrs” on top to be frozen and eaten later.  We froze it, and then vacuum-sealed it.  We figured its best chance of not tasting totally gross would be vacuum sealing it.  We weren’t planning on doing this little tradition, but since our baker surprised us, we figured we might as well give it a try.

I didn’t, but my BFF and her DH did and said it tasted like soap.

MexiPino:  We did. We have a pretty big freezer so room wasn’t an issue. My venue actually wrapped it and handed it to us at the end of the wedding. Had no idea that was gonna happen haha. We took it out a year later, cut one slice, and it surprisingly wasn’t disgusting.

My father’s second wedding saved the cake. It was a chocolate vanilla swirl cheesecake. Yes, as a child I snuck bites through the year (bad person, I know). They separated before the first year was done. The taste did go down hill as the months went on. I ate the last when they divorced a year after the wedding. Terrible, yes. No one else was ging to eat it. And with good reason

MexiPino:  Our baker will make us a mini cake on our one year anniversary, free of charge. Will your cousin offer the same thing if you ask? Year old cake will not be good, no matter how good it is the day of your wedding!
