A charming tradition is for the bride and groom to save the top tier of their wedding cake to enjoy on their first anniversary. To do that, here are a few tips to make it as sweet as can be.
Choosing the type of cake is a key to success. Cakes that store well in the freezer: chocolate, hazelnut, almond, and carrot cake.Cakes that do not do so well in the freezer: white cake, cake with fresh fruit, and cakes with whipped cream fillings.
Make sure you let the caterer or venue manager know you intend on
saving the top tier.
Set someone in charge of taking the cake home with them since
you may be heading straight out onto your honeymoon.
Remove any sugar flowers or other sugar decorations that may
be on the cake, and set them aside.
Place the cake in the refrigerator to allow it to chill. This helps to
make sure the icing hardens so it does not stick to the plastic wrap.
