Preserving the top tier of your wedding cake and eating it on your first anniversary is becoming more and more popular. After much thought and consideration, my husband and I decided to do it.

Are you preserving your wedding cake for your one year anniversary? Why or why not?

    Nope. I can barely contain myself from eat my own birthday cake. I'd eat it all before the year was up! 馃ぃ
    We're also planning on getting a cake from a local popular/famous bakery and I doubt my guests will leave any behind! My in laws LOVE the bakery and live further away from it so they devour anything I bring from it. I am expecting the wedding cake to be gone before the buffet.

    We won鈥檛 be coming home right away to do it, planning to head south from where we get married on a mini trip. Also, FH doesn鈥檛 like cake. I鈥檒l probably get fancy for our first anniversary, I made beef Wellington and lava cakes for our anniversary a couple years ago and it was a big hit 馃槈.

    No. Cake doesn鈥檛 keep that long. I鈥檓 a pastry chef, I would never....but I plan on recreating a smaller version of our cake for our one year though. It鈥檚 better to do and you get fresh cake!

    Yup! It was one of FH鈥檚 requests, and since he鈥檚 only had a few, I figured, why not?

    Trust me, in a year it won鈥檛 taste like cake. I brought ours home and we ate it the first week. 馃槀 On our 1st Anniversary we will go somewhere special and won鈥檛 be thinking about the cake.

    My parents kept theirs in the freezer for about 20 years. They ate some on their first anniversary apparently and then just wrapped it up and saved it for 鈥済ood luck鈥 (they鈥檝e been married almost 30 years now so I guess it worked lol). They actually only got rid of it because they got a new fridge and accidentally left it out all day. FH and I probably won鈥檛 save ours though. Our freezer is full and the bakery we鈥檙e using will make us a free anniversary cake Smiley smile

    No we are not. FH said he though the idea was gross... there's no way it will be good after a year in the freezer. I agree with him but I was going to do it because I'm a sucker for traditions lol Our baker gave us the option of a complimentary small cake on our one year anniversary. He said he can either make it at the time of the wedding and vacuum seal it or we could come back in a year and he would make it fresh. I thought that was very nice and that way we don't have the save the top tier at the wedding.

    I had never heard of this but our cake lady asked if we wanted to. Told her yes but we will probably eat it when we get home from the wedding. We have a small freezer and we like cake 馃巶 馃し鈥嶁檧锔

    Yes. Couples have been saving their top tier in the freezer for years and cake can hold that long in the freezer and just thaw it out and enjoy. We are doing this for sure. I do this with my own birthday cake every year!

    I don't like the idea of eating something that has been frozen for a year! Our baker offers a one tier replica cake for our 1 year anniversary that we'll likely purchase! Smiley cake

    Me and fianc茅 want to preserve our cake but after meeting with our wedding cake maker she offers a free specialty cake just for our one year anniversary and we all have to do is let her know. Free of charge because she said the frozen cake doesn鈥檛 always stay fresh.

    We are not going to save the top of our cake. The bakery we chose will actually remake the cake top for us for our wedding anniversary.

    We鈥檙e moving across the country a couple months after we get married, so I don鈥檛 think it will be worth the hassle

    Yes, we are totally doing this! I heard that the taste of your wedding cake 鈥渢astes like your wedding day鈥. I can only imagine that eating it a year later and tasting 鈥渙ur wedding day鈥 will bring back memories of our wedding 馃挆. Of course I鈥檓 going to research and make sure we package it correctly for the big freeze!

    We are only having a top tier, and then the rest of the cake will be cupcakes, so who knows? 馃し馃徎鈥嶁檧锔 my parents saved a slice of their wedding cake that they meant to eat on their first anniversary and forgot. Instead, it stayed wrapped in their freezer, and moved to every house with them. It鈥檚 basically been kind of a running joke, but hey! Their marriage has lasted 28 years as of today! (Happy Anniversary mom and dad!) so maybe they鈥檙e on to something 馃し馃徎鈥嶁檧锔

    I really don't even like leftovers so it was a tough decision for me, I agreed to it because my husband wants to do it.
