Soiree Classroom: How to freeze your cake top

Tradition tells us that we should eat the top layer of our wedding cake on our first anniversary. While I like the tradition and chose to do it with my husband, eating year-old cake isn't for everyone. Some bakers are now offering a small complimentary cake for your anniversary as an incentive to order your wedding cake from them, which may be an option for anyone who's skeeved out by this tradition. For the rest of you, here's how to freeze your wedding cake:

1. Place the top of the cake in the freezer for about two hours to solidify the frosting.

2. Wrap the cake in a few layers of plastic wrap. The goal is that no air will touch the cake.3. Wrap a layer of heavy duty aluminum foil around the cake, covering the plastic.4. Repeat steps 2 & 3 a few times until your cake looks like Randy from A Christmas Story:5. Put cake in an airtight plastic container (Optional. Martha says to do this but I didn't and it worked just fine).

6. Wait one year

7. Enjoy!

  • That's exactly what we did - except for the container. One month into it we realized our cake was taking up 1/3 of our freezer. We ate all except 1 piece, rewrapped it and ate at the 1 year mark. Still delicious!
