MissPurplePurl:  I’m pretty sure I wrapped it in plastic wrap, then about 6 layers of tinfoil, then in plastic wrap again, and then into a piece of tupperware, lol. I think the key to it tasting good is to wrap it as tight as possible so it doesn’t get freezer burn. I think it helped that ours was carrot cake too as it probably had a lot of oil in it.

Nope, DH can’t eat sweets so it wouldn’t have been something we could enjoy together.

We saved our top layer and our anniversary is coming up in just over 2 months.  We wrapped it up well in a air-tight container and it’s been taunting me ever since!  The only bite I had at the wedding was the one my DH fed me when we cut it, so I am super eager to try it.  I’ll let you know how it turns out!

I’ve heard so many stories about how the top of the cake tastes so bad after one year. So we divided the top layer of the wedding cake into 12 slices and have been sharing a slice each month on our month-aversary. It’s been a fun way to celebrate our first year of marriage. Sadly, we just celebrated our 11 month anniversary and the cake took a turn for the worst. 🙁 I still have our slice to make our one year anniversary because I don’t have the heart to throw it away.

We stuffed our faces with the leftovers before and after the honeymoon, and plan to order a small cake for our 1 year anniversary!  It was from an awesome grocery store, so we can get a slice anytime we want…  for my birthday, my husband stopped there to get me flowers and a slice of cake, and it was the best thing ever to see him walking up to the house with that!  Can’t wait to have more, it’s so delicious…

Ha ha! My husband and I discussed this, and decided against it pretty quick. We both did that for our first marriages, and apparantly, both cakes were nasty after a year! We are in the camp of just get a new one, or a few cupcakes, from the bakery that made our cake.

Plus, we had a very small wedding, and our whole cake was about the size of a normal top tier!

Westwood: Thanks so much for that insight! I haven’t done research and I would have definitely skipped the tupperware by mistake.

mrsmbeegee: Such an insanely good idea and very unique. I like the idea of actively getting to experience your wedding again each month.

MissPurplePurl:  I think it’s supposed to be wrapped in plastic and then a double layer of foil. My hotel did it for me.

Ours was also surprisingly good. I thought it would be down right awful, but I wrapped it twice in plastic wrap, then in foil, and it held up good.

…awww.. I wish I had some now!

Yes!! We ate ours a few weeks ago for our one year and , like you, it was surprisingly good! Also, our baker also made us a one year anniversary cake. 

We had two types of cake traditional white cake and chocolate both had kahlua cream covered with butter cream and fondant. No odd really likes fondant however we found a bakery whose fondant was surprsingly good. I have attached photos here for your viewing. And I had crystal brooches applied to the outside.



We had to thaw it for a few hours before we could cut into it.
