Saving Your Wedding Cake's Top Layer

Many couples choose to follow the tradition of saving the top tier of the wedding cake to enjoy on their first anniversary. Savoring a slice of the wedding cake on your anniversary while watching your professionally taped wedding DVD will provide you with an opportunity to reminisce about the many memories created on your big day.

How To Wrap Up Your Cake Tier :

Make sure someone with the catering staff is going to take off the top tier of the wedding cake and box it for transport. Appoint a "cake captain" (one of your family members or friends) to take it home. Once it's home, that person should do the following:

  1. Remove the sugar flowers and set them aside.
  2. Chill the cake well before wrapping it up so that the icing hardens. This way it the icing will be a little easier to work with.
  3. Seal the wrapped cake in an air-tight bag and place it in the freezer. You might even want to use a vacuum sealer or a straw to suck out the excess air from the bags. Any oxygen left in the bag will start to suck moisture from your cake
  4. Put cake in cake box (provided) and wrap the outside of the cake box with plastic.
  5. Snag a ribbon (from your bouquet, the centerpieces, your hair, a gift) and tie it around the cake package to mark it so that you don't mistake it for anything else.
  6. Put entire wrapped box in freezer

Helpful hints when ready to eat your preserved wedding cake

  1. After removing the plastic from the box and cake, thaw the cake in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  2. Remove the cake from the refrigerator and leave it at room temperature for 2 more hours.
  3. Slice it, pop in that professionally taped wedding DVD, and enjoy!
