Tuesday Traditions - Wedding Cake Top

Tuesday Traditions - What to do with the top of your cake?

Something Old, New, Borrowed and Blue - Wedding Traditions have been around forever; Just like keeping some of your wedding cake and eating it on your first anniversary.  I know how excited I was to rekindle apart of my wedding day on my first anniversary.  I thought I would share with you what my baker told me regarding my cake top.

The proper way to freeze your wedding cake top so that it tastes GOOD a year later:
After the wedding make sure your mom or MOH takes the cake home. You will be so busy on your honeymoon to worry.  Wrap in plastic wrap, then in tin foil.  If there is room in your freezer also place in a plastic container (ziploc, rubbermaid etc).  Label and place at back of freezer.

Tradition states that you need to eat it a year later but I think your 6 month anniversary would be another perfect time.  Take the cake out the morning you want to eat it and by dinner it will be ready to enjoy.  I bet if you ask your baker she would make you a small cake or even 2 cupcakes on your 1 year anniversary.

Another tradition a wedding client of mine tried was to eat some cake every month!  She cut her cake topper into 12 pieces and individually wrapped them, then on the month anniversary, took one piece of cake out of the freezer and she and her hubby got to enjoy throughout the year.

Did you eat your wedding cake?  Did it taste good a year later?
