    Our baker is making us a new cake for our one year anniversary, so we didn’t save ours.  My husband is VERY into cake, so this was the best way to go for us.  ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have had cake in my freezer for 3 weeks and it gets kinda funky tasting. There’s just no way to preserve it to its original glory.

    We’re serving ours at brunch the next day (maybe 10 ppl) while we open gifts. We’ll just get a new one!!!!!! FRESH! Seriously. I have food in my freezer for 6 months and it gets that freezer taste. Cake? Oh, disgusting! Plus, how could I stay away from it or 12 months? I’d be forking at it every few days

    Were going to save the top layer – Future Mother-In-Law has wrapped and saved them before for FI’s brothers so were gonna try it. If its gross, oh well at least we tried it ๐Ÿ™‚  It will have to stay at FIL’s house cause I will try and eat it though!

    My mom froze and saved our cake and put it in their deep freezer at their home.  When we were there at Christmas, we all broke it out and our whole family ate it together (that’s just how we are-everyone dug in).  That was about 6 months after our wedding, and it still tasted pretty good!  I’m glad we didn’t wait a whole year – we wouldn’t have been there anyways, and I bet it would have been a little gross by that point.

    We’re not planning to save ours for our first anniversary. We have a small kitchen and freezer space is at a premium! I’d rather go out for dessert on our first anniversary, anyway, than eat year-old cake!

    Cake doesn’t last a day in our house, let alone a year. Just not going to happen.

    I will try to save our cake b/c I think it’s a cool tradition, but I’m not sure if we’ll actually really eat it. I don’t know how practical that is though… we plan to be on vacation for our anniversary anyway at that time.

    We thought about saving the top layer because it is a really sweet tradition, but I think we’d be afraid to eat it after a year in the freezer!

    I’ve never heard good things about cake saved in the freezer–no matter how well you package it up and store it away.  Although I’m not married yet, we aren’t even having cake as the main "dessert"….we are doing some awesome pies! We are going to have our "cake topper" set up somehow, maybe on a small round cake of one layer high, for those who don’t like cake.  But we aren’t even cutting that cake–we are going to cut the pie and eat it with a fork.  Can’t handle apples falling all over me and there will be NO smooshing of pie in my face or FIs. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m pretty sure we will have it for breakfast the next day! And we’ll just get a new cake for each anniversary!

    We think we are waiting one month.

    I really want to enjoy the cake a second time and not be timidly biting off a corner! I also like the idea of getting to spend a special moment so early in the marriage with my FH ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hmm. I am not sure what we’ll do! =) We’re going to be having a cupcake tower with a small layer cake on the top tier to do the cake cutting…so if we do keep it, it will be an incomplete layer! =D Plus, I’m not sure how good it would taste if we waited a year (’cause I know the keeping the cake tradition actually orginated with fruitcake, which keeps…quite well), so we might do the month-aversary thing and request that my uncle make a cake for our 1-year anniversary (he’s a baker). =)

    Our bakery will also make us a cake for our 1 yr. anniversary, no extra charge!  Mmmm.  I had a good friend freeze their top layer and ‘try’ to eat it after a year–she said it tasted stale and gross, not worth it! hehe.
