Ours got forgotten in the back of the freezer when we went out the night of our first anniversary. We found it a few months later and decided not to risk eating it. It just looked....weird.

We haven't opened our yet. I defrosted in yesterday in the fridge so we will see. We went out for lunch earlier and we did some of our anniversary things yesterday. We just ate dinner and will be inspecting the cake soon. I told DH that he will be trying the cake first!

Yes, we saved the top tier of our wedding cake, wrapped it in saran wrap and foil and put it in the deep freeze to be enjoyed on our first wedding anniversary - which we did, very much so! It was absolutely delicious. I am so glad that we saved it aside as I could not remember tasting the cake at our reception, I remember eating the ceremonial piece but to taste it I do not recall. a friend made our beautiful cake for us.

I know this is kind of late but I have an interesting story about ours. My ex-hubby and I planned our wedding cake to symbolize our marriage. It was a 3-tiered cake. The bottom and biggest layer was supposed to be his favorite flavor, chocolate. The middle and only slightly smaller layer was supposed to be white which is my favorite flavor. The small top layer that we planned to save was supposed to be marbe symbolizing our "union". Well during all the craziness of the wedding reception we didn't pay much attention to the cake and how it was made. So on our first anniversary we pulled out the top layer and decided to give it a try. Besides the fact that it tasted like everything else in a typical freezer and the fondant didn't freeze well so it tasted horrible...the whole top layer was completely white cake. After more thought I vaguely remember eating a piece of marble at the reception because I absolutely do not like all chocolate cake. So whether it was just an odd coincidence or the cake actually jinxed our marriage we'll never know but just like the cake our marriage was mostly about him only, partially about him with a little bit of me thrown in, while my needs were always tucked away for later. LOL

I have never heard of that until now. So I also have never tried it.
