    We're not to fond of the 1 layer cake in the options our resort includes. We have no problem spending the money for a larger, nicer cake. I contacted our WC at the Excellence and she told me they could easily do a smaller 2 tier version of the cake I like-I thought this was great because we would keep the top tier. But now I've started thinking- would we be able to bring it home? Would the airlines allow that? I know they don't allow any outside food/drinks on th planes so I'm kinda worrying about spending the additional money if it's just going to go to waste.

    Has anyone brought their top tier home?

      I don't know how you would go about keeping the top tier from a DW. I know my resort (Karisma) won't even let you take the cake back to your room after the wedding, some sort of food safety B.S. rule.
      You can bring food on to an airplane, it's getting it past security that might be an issue. But Mexico security is nothing like US security.

        You wouldn't have a problem going through US customs with it upon arrival in the US.

        You are simply not allowed to bring raw food, fresh fruits and vegatable, plants or animals.

        The fine for above mentioned items is $500.

          I was able to bring mine back on the plane. I just had it in a bag as a carryon and put it through the xray belt. No problems.

            Wouldn't it just be easier to have a small replica cake created for your 1st anniversary?

            I'm not sure how well cake would keep in the heat and the travelling.

            (think of all that icing melting... yuck!)

              I was just wondering this a couple days ago. I asked my WC and she did tell me that they will help me to box the top tier of my cake. And I am assuming that since this is something they normally do, that US customs must allow it or she would've told me that. And I also looked up on the US Customs website and like already mentioned it only says no raw vegetables, fruits, and that kind of thing. So, I will be boxing mine up and taking it home with me. I know I could get a replica but if I can help it at all, I want to bring my actual top tier home with us. But I guess I'll know for sure once I go to get on the plane :)

                I think I would much rather have the real top layer than pay to get a replica made. especially if I'm going to be paying extra to get another tier so I can bring my cake back home.
