We wrapped our top tier in lots of plastic wrap, then put it in the cake box and froze to “try” to eat on our 1 year anniversary! I guess if its gross we will just celebrate by eating a different dessert, but we had so much cake left over we figured it was worth a shot! =)

We didn’t have any leftover cake.  Our wedding planner saved us two slices, but our cake was such a hit that my ILs asked me if we had any leftovers, so we gave him one of our slices.  The other slice we just ate, because we didn’t get to have any cake on our wedding day.  I personally don’t like the idea of eating one year old, frozen cake.  I rather just go to the bakery where we got the cake and order a fresh slice on our one year anniversary.  I guess I’m not a romantic.  We had a Destination Wedding, so our cake would probably have gone bad on the trip back anyway.

Our contract includes a new top tier for our 1st anniversary. They sent us home with the top tier and told us to eat and enjoy it fresh!

futuremrsjrc0917 :  we saved ours. The venue wrapped it up very well and we ate it for our 1 year anniversary. We heated it up a bit. Even though it was sorta dry, it was still as sweet <3

The top tier of our wedding cake has spent the last ten months wrapped in tinfoil in our freezer. We will thaw it in the fridge the day before our anniversary so it’ll be ok to eat when we are ready for it. Not going to lie, I’m not overly looking forward to it, but I think it is a sweet tradition.

Our baker told us that the trick is to wrap the box in  plastic wrap,  then aluminum foil, then put the whole thing in a paper bag and staple it shut. The paper bag is supposed to absorb the nastiness. We did this and then let it defrost in the refrigerator a day before our anniversary. The paper bag smelled gross, but the top layer inside was delicious a year later.

I don’t plan on doing it. If my Fiance wants to save cake to eat on our anniversary he can, but he’ll be eating that cake by himself while I’m eating from a freshly made replica of our cake.

We saved our top layer which was a cheesecake. It had fondant over it (which we peeled away when we went to eat it) and we wrapped multiple times in plastic wrap and foil. We didn’t make it to one year, we ate it around 3 months in? Just because it sounded good lol. It tasted amazing and wasn’t icky at all. I think it all depends on how you preserve it. If you have access to a deep freezer, that’s definitely the way to go!
