Wedding Cake: How Do We Save the Top Tier?


What is the best way to save the top tier of our wedding cake so that it's actually edible on our one-year wedding anniversary?


The trick is to use a method that seals in the yummy taste. Before your wedding, find a plastic container with an airtight lid that the top tier will fit inside of (you may have to cut the wedding cake in two). Give the container to your caterer or reception hall manager before the wedding so they can pack the cake in the container immediately after it's cut. Then ask a parent or friend who lives in your area to be in charge of placing the cake in a fridge as soon as possible. To freeze the top tier for the rest of the year, wrap your container in tinfoil and place it in the freezer. One year later, you'll be ready to thaw it, eat it, and celebrate!
