Did everyone from your baker , your friends and family tell you to save the top tier of your cake for your first wedding anniversary? Were you one of those brides whom had a bad experience with frozen cakes? Therefore, you are reluctant to saving the top tier, but you paid a pretty penny for that thing and hate to throw it away. Well, I don’t know about you, but that was me.
Who knew I would try marriage again. Nonetheless do something traditional as save the top tier of my cake for the one year anniversary . Did you know the tradition symbolized recycling to your wedding into the celebration of your first child? It’s also a sentiment of good luck and prosperity. Often times this is done out of sequence. Children come along before marriage.
I’m not saying it’s a good or bad thing; however I can think of many reasons why some things should remain traditional.
My cake was plain and elegant. May I emphasize it was plain. This is the top tier. It looks a little beat up from other items in the freezer pressing against it.
How to Freeze a Cake:
- Wrap it in plastic wrap. ( Preferably brand name)
- Zip it in two freezer bags. ( The good ones; don’t be cheap)
- Try to have a spot in the freezer solely for the cake. ( I didn’t have the space)
It may not look delicious here, but it was more than good. Looking at this image I can smell the fresh butter. Have you ever tasted a cake that tasted better after it’s been frozen for a year? This cake was it girls! The icing was amazing. Typically I expect the icing to taste like food coloring. That old yuk sour taste. No girl, this cake was smooth and flaky. It wasn’t spongy, crunchy, hard, dry…you get the gist. I’m not good with food descriptions. Hats off to all of you food bloggers.
Don’t judge me too harshly on my photo. You see that sliced piece? I literally cut it for my myself. Immediately I dropped it on the plate and ran for the camera. I’m so mushy this way. Memories are important to me. More important than a technically correct photo. Besides as soon as I saw this shot, I thought of my finger prints pressed in the top, from unwrapping the plastic. This is what preserving the memories is all about.
