    I personally dont understand the idea of eating stale cake to celebrate the 1yr anniversary, So I dont plan to keep my top layer that long. maybe for our 1 week anniversary lol

    We were going to, but the lady doing our cake said that they never really look or taste as good after a year in the freezer, and on top of that, we’re moving 2 months after the wedding, so we would have to somehow pack frozen cake and move it…. how silly, right? 

    I think we’re just going to save some of it and have it the next day before we fly out for our honeymoon. 

    The woman who is doing our cake also said that some couples opt to have a replica top tier made for their anniversary. She’s really affordable, so if we weren’t moving I might have considered going that route.

    We saved ours but we dont have it at our house….it is still at the place where we got married! We are going back down for July 4th so I think we will be eating our cake a little early!

    I might save it for something like the one-month anniversary…but it is NOT going to taste good a year later! (why waste a perfectly good cake?)

    No we didn’t plan on it but they wrapped it up and sent it home anyway.  We then had to eat it all in a month because we were about to move across the country.  Needless to say, not fun.

    My FI’s grandmother told me we HAVE TO save the top tier…we aren’t.  My sister, who is making my wedding cake, is going to make it sturdy enough that when we cut our cake, we’re going to cut straight into the top tier.  I don’t care how it’s frozen, eating something that has been in my freezer for a year just sounds nasty.

    Not saving it here.   We did from my first wedding and it was just gross.  I know how to freeze a cake properly, and it still just wasn’t the same.

    I’d rather buy less cake now, and get a yummy little cake fresh for our anniversary 🙂

    We saved ours and I was VERY hesitant about eating it a year later.  Just the thought of it sitting in the freezer for a year seriously grossed me out.  However, I sucked it up and took one tiny little bite…and….was greatly surprised.  It tasted delicious, just like it did during our reception.  We gobbled it up in no time! lol

    We aren’t saving ours because our baker is going to make us a new one on our anniversary.

    No.  Gross.  Plus, we can just get one made by the same bakery later. 🙂

    I wouldn’t want to eat year-old cake. Our plan is to have our baker (a friend of the family) recreate the top tier of our wedding cake for our 1st anniversary.

    Nope, not gonna.  I never could figure out where that tradition comes from and, to be honest, I’d rather have a small cake for us and cupcakes for everyone else.  Especially with kids around… That way, we can have the “cake cutting” photos and stuff and not have to worry about no one not getting any cake/cupcakes (not every got cake at my brother’s wedding, the jerk).

    We are not. Our cake place just said that if we call a week before our anniversary they will make it again at no cost. 🙂

    We saved it and had it after five months (our other wedding anniversary since we had two weddings) and it was disgusting! We had one bite each and threw it out.
