Our baker makes a fresh mini-cake for the first year anniversary.  And if she didn’t, I still wouldn’t keep the top tier in the freezer.  It would drive me nuts seeing it in there all year long…  hahaha!

I like the idea of the fresh cake, and know that the original cake is more par to tradition, but I would be so afraid that it would taste like freezer burn.. Not my idea of a great anniversary night taking care of a sick husband a year later, lol. I know they have freezer bags or what have you for that, but I would much rather have an anniversary cake. 🙂

I went to my cousins Christening last month and my Aunty and Uncle served their 2 year old wedding cake, it was a fruit cake and all they did was have the actual cake re iced, have to say that it was delicious, and I would never have known it was that old

Fiance and I aren’t really cake eaters.. As a matter of fact, the ONLY cake we like is cheesecake, so we will be cutting into that and the remaining tiers/layers we are doing cupcakes. I didn’t want to go with tradition, even the sound of year old wedding cake makes my stomach hurt. So I will be getting a small fresh cheesecake (maybe strawberry) from our local bakery for our 1 year anniversary.

I wrapped up our cake with the intention of eating it in a year, we shall see. Our baker does offer to make a six inch fresh cake for all clients should something happen to the preserved cake.

Our bakery offered for free a small cake for our first anniversary.  Everyone that I know that froze their original wedding cake said it was pretty awful once they tried to eat it a year later.

I’ve always wondered if year old cake actually is edible – it sounds so far out to me!

Yeah , not freezing the cake.  I love cake too much… I’ll eat that bad boy way before the 1st year anniversary.

We’re getting a fresh cake made, too. We ended up liking the groom’s cake a lot better, so we’re having it made with those flavors. It’s sooooo close!

I recently asked this question to 2 gals at work and both told me that their cakes were great despite a year of freezing, and that they refroze the leftovers and had it again on their second anniversaries.  They both had fondant, though, which may have helped keep the cake fresh, but I would think that if you wrap it well it will also be fine.

As far as I know, cake can be frozen without ruining it but icing doesn’t work as well.

The trick to cake freezing is to wrap the cake in foil, plastic wrap, foil, plastic wrap.  The layers help to eliminate any exposure to air, etc.

We froze our top layer with the intention of eating it.  Its is carrot cake with the best cream cheese frosting.  But I will order a small cake of our second cake flavor of almond cake, creme brulee, raspberry coulis, fudge cake, vanilla buttercream so we can taste them both.  Yum.
