Ours is sitting in our freezer as we speak… I don’t know if it’ll make it to our one year anniversary because I’ve already considered defrosting it on several occasions already, and our one month-iversary is tomorrow (the 25th).  Maybe I can talk the hubby into breaking it out for our 3 month and we can get a new cake for one year.  I’m not worried about it tasting weird or bacteria – I just really like cake and want to eat it.

We’re not planning on freezing ours.  It just seems like a waste. Especially if it ends up tasting like crap and we throw it all away.  We’ll probably just order a fresh cake for our 1 year anniversary

I’ve been married once before, we just reordered the top layer of the original cake we had for our wedding…much better than freezer burn cake.

We just enjoyed out wedding top 6/27. It was carrot cake with the marshmellow fondant.  although the cake was a bit dry, it wasn’t bad.  we wrapped it in wax paper, then two layers of plastic wrap then, tin foil then slipped it in a freezer bag.

My husband and I wrapped our topper in Saran Wrap then Reynolds Aluminum Foil. It tasted great on our one year anniversary!

Wedding Cakes were traditionally fruit cakes (lol usually with lots of rum in them as well as the fruit).  Those cakes could be preserved really well, especially if they were frozen.  I know folks who were able to “save” the top layer of their wedding fruitcake when well wrapped for up to 5 years.  And it was still delicious (had some at a Baby’s Christening)

Any other cake (which is now more popular) as the others say tends to get freezer burn.

As others mentioned, take lots of pics, and if your Baker is still around in the future when you want to celebrate, they can probably recreate the cake for you.

We had a mud cake, and ate it on our anniversary, it tasted ok, not bad, but not fantastic.

We’re not planning on doing this as I don’t really have a desire to eat year-old cake, even if it was my wedding cake; don’t think we’d have room in our freezer either lol. I guess I’m not sentimental like that. I know many brides that have and most say it tastes not so great :/ The one slice is a good idea instead of the whole cake, but we will probably just order a small cake from our baker for our one year. I think tasting exactly like our wedding cake is more ideal than eating an aged version of it?

We did this and when it came time ( a year later) it was disgusting! The look on my hubby’s face was priceless. He was trying so hard not to make a face but it was really bad!

yep or is in our freezer!!! I cant wait to have a one year small anniversary party and pull it out 🙂  Even if its just a bite we eat and it taste terrible I dont care I really wanted to do this!!! Im also going to order a small cake from the same place that replicates what we had!  We had 3 different flavors/ three different layers and all my husband got of his favorite was the bite we shared, so i will surpirse him!

We did not save ours. We are getting a free 6 inch on our 1 year anniversary from the place we ordered through.

The top of my parents’ wedding cake stayed in my great grandparents’ freezer for about 20 years.  On accident!  When my mom discovered it she threw it out.  I thought it was really funny.

We saved ours, it wasn’t half bad. We each had a piece and I was ready to toss the rest but DH made me keep it in the fridge for a week so he could have some more. We wrapped it up several times so no freezer burn.
