    We ditched the wedding cake and had donut towers instead so we will probably go have a donut on our anniversary. We would not have eaten stale cake though, had we had a wedding cake.

    Our cake vendor automatically makes it as one of the tiers for the cake at no charge. We were debating on saving it but I don鈥檛 think I will be able to 馃槀

    Ditch. We didn't have enough cake left anyway even if we kept the top.

    Yuck. We may order a duplicate of our wedding cake for our anniversary, but it'll definitely be fresh.

    Our wedding cake baker is making us a fresh cake for our anniversary, so we will have a fresh one! However, I would not eat a year old, freezer burned cake if that was our only option.

    Yes!

    My sister, who got married a year ago said she and her husband did this; the cake tasted awful, though it's the tradition of doing it. (I think I read somewhere that it's usually for celebrating the announcement of birth and used to celebrate? I could be mistaken, though thought it was interesting.)
