Hmm… I was strongly considering freezing it for tradition’s sake, but after reading all of this…I am not sure I want to take up all the freezer space for something that will probably be weird and my FH will only take one bite of (if that—he’s picky about food and food quality).  Maybe since this tradition was done with rum infused fruit cake before, which will most certainly will NOT be having…we can start a new tradition instead?

Absolutely! That’s a great idea. I think creating your own family traditions is much more fun and meaningful than having to eat freezer burned cake for the sake of tradition.

Our honeymoon is a a few weeks after the wedding, so we’ll take the top layer to eat while we’re honeymooning – we can just get a small anniversary cake next year.

We just got a deep freezer for a wedding gift (yay! one of my favorite gifts so far!), so I was tempted to deep freeze it for next year and go by tradition, but I’m afraid it wouldn’t come out okay, and wasted cake is a sin I just won’t commit.

We saved ours. I double-wrapped it in cellophane then in foil. It was surprisingly still delicious! Like, if i hadn’t known it was in the freezer a year, I’d never have guessed. It wasn’t the prettiest, but that’s never stopped me.

Ours is in the freezer.  I’ve been told by people that their cakes were great and actually ate pieces for several anniversaries since they didn’t finish the entire cake on thier first anniversary.  Wrap it well and it will be fine.

@AprilJo2011:  I think maybe baking a cake and decorating it together for the anniversary would be much more meaningful 🙂  FH and I love to be in the kitchen anyways, so this could be a fun new tradition 🙂

We did. Our baker told us how… saran, foil, saran, back in box.

My wedding is still a while away, but I don’t plan to freeze the top layer. I know several bakers and I’ll probably just have a fresh one done for our anniversary.

When my mom got remarried they were going to freeze theirs but when my mom went to get it, it was gone. Apparently a guest  took it home with them… So they had to get another one made for their anniversary. But really, who takes the top layer of someone else’s wedding cake?
