Couples often make a tradition out of freezing their wedding cake for a year and eating it on their one-year anniversary. It is considered good luck and an omen for long life together to preserve the top tier of your wedding cake to eat on your first anniversary.
Sweet Cheeks Bakery provides a complimentary top tier with every wedding cake we make. Store yours properly, follow these instructions (which we also provide with the cake), and your wedding cake "anniversary tier" will still taste good even after a year. It's a very simple task to accomplish.
Ask a responsible person to take the top layer home. First, this layer should be placed into the freezer immediately to harden the icing. In one to two hours, the cake should be frozen. The cake should then be loosely wrapped in plastic several times and placed into the cake box. The cake box should also be wrapped in plastic, and then placed into the freezer. This will preserve the taste and texture of the cake.
Caution: never keep the cake in a frost-free freezer, because the constant defrosting will draw the moisture out of the cake. If you are moving within the year, leave the cake with in a family member or friend’s freezer after the wedding to avoid moving the cake before your anniversary.
When you are prepared to eat your cake on your anniversary, remove the cake from the freezer and thaw in the refrigerator for 48 hours, then place at room temperature for 2 to 3 hours. Your cake will be as beautiful and tasty as the day of your wedding!
