Well it has been 8 months since our big day… hard to believe. And I was thinking about what we would be doing for our 1 year Aniv. We won’t be having the top tier of our wedding cake. Why? Because we decided at the time to forgo this tradition because after all who wants to eat year old cake, we could save a few bucks and we needed the top layer to serve to our guests.
Now I’m wishing we didn’t skip this tradition. My girlfriend is celebrating her 1 year aniv this weekend and is pulling the cake out of the freezer to celebrate! And it made me think, why did I ever let the bakery talk me into skipping this. You see they told me they’d make us a fresh top tier. Which I really doubt will happen without us paying for it.
What I wished we would have done was had a small cake made for us to take home to eat after the wedding. We didn’t get a slice of that wonderful cake at the reception and we were so tired and hungry after the reception it would have been nice to have our own honeymoon cake!
Oh well, can’t go back but thought I’d post this for others to think about

Maybe for your anniversary you could have your bakery make you a little cake in your wedding flavors. It would probably taste better than an old one anyway 🙂

I’m skipping this tradition as well. I’m sorry you’re sad about it…but everyone I know who has done it said the cake doesn’t even taste like cake anymore…I was told it tastes like the freezer or a piece of cardboard. I would say go get a fresh small cake and enjoy it with your hubby.

I know a lot of bakeries will remake the top tier for no cost. Even if you have to pay for it, it’s the fact that you will have the same cake on your 1 year anniversary. I dont think the fact that it was frozen for a year makes it more special.

I don’t even like cake but I was thinking about it. The thought of fresh cake appeals to me more than year old wedding cake. How about you ask your friend how hers tasted?

Part of the cost of the cake at my bakery includes (free of any additional charge) a new top tier identical to your wedding cake for your one year anniversary. I’d look into it because this seems to be becoming more common and there is probably a decent chance you won’t have to pay for yours either!

I agree, just have the top tier reproduced. Frankly, the idea of freezing our cake and eating it a year later has always grossed me out. I can’t think of anything I’ve left in the freezer for a year that tasted good; something as delicate as cake certainly is bound to be no exception!

Hey! I got married on the same day as you.
We did freeze our cake. But I kept reading about how gross it tastes after being in the freezer for a whole year.
So we busted it out on our month-versary with a bottle of champagne. It was DELICOUS.
I did keep two slices in the freezer for our one year anniversary. But I’m pretty sure I will also buy a replica cake as well in case the frozen one tastes like crap.

We don’t get to do this one either, but it’s because we can’t bring the cake home from Mexico! lol. I wish we could 🙁
I’m sure you guys can think of something else to do that will be special for the day 🙂

My bakery also includes a free (well, included in the cake price) top tier of your wedding cake made on your first anniversary. I think food that’s been in the freezer too long starts to take on weird flavors/textures, and a year is a really long time! If I were you, I’d go to the bakery and ask them to make you a new small cake for your anniversary in your wedding flavors.

We saved ours….was well wrapped and protected but tasted so dry and wasn’t worth eating. Wished we would have ordered a new small cake. Next year we will.
