We had the same problem! My dad opened the box with the top tier in it the day after the wedding, saw the cake and stuck it in the freezer–complete with the flowers still on it! It has since been wrapped and re-frozen.

 I would imagine that in your situation the worst case scenario at the year mark is going to be a bit freezer burn and a stale cake. Since it was frozen quickly it should be safe to eat but probably won’t taste as amazing as it did the day of the wedding.

As for defrosting? I plan on putting the top tier in the refrigerator the day before our anniversary. I am not sure if that is the proper way to do it, so I am anxious to see other responses!

Defrosting anything in the refridgerator is probably safer than on the countertop because it prevents bacteria growth.

Since it went a few weeks without being wrapped, it may taste a little dry depending on the icing, but it should be fine.  To defrost it, I would recommend taking it out of the freezer the day before you want to eat it and let it defrost in the fridge for a day. That’s what we did and it worked really well.
