Traditionally, newlyweds have saved the top tier of their wedding cake to eat together on their first wedding anniversary! Do you plan on participating in this popular post-wedding tradition? Or are you taking a pass on stale cake! Smiley laugh

Are you saving the top tier of your wedding cake, or ditching this tradition? Smiley cake

    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.)
