What are you ladies doing about the top layer of the cake?  I'm trying to see if I can coordinate getting dry ice in Turks & Caicos to have it packed and shipped to my house where our dog sitter can put in the freezer right away, but not even sure that this is an option with mail system nightmare stories I have heard about just postcards not making it!


Are you just going to have a cake at your AHR (if you're having one) and use that for your first anniversary?

    I would do the cake from your AHR, too much work for something silly in my opinion!

    My idea on how to keep this tradtion was to get the recipe from the baker at the hotel so that I can bake the same cake or have a bakery make it on our one year anniversary.  We aren't having anything too complicated so I figured this was a cool way to have "our" wedding cake on our anniversary.  I don't think it'll be possible to bring the actual cake back with us since we are staying for a whole week after our wedding for our honeymoon.  I also love to bake so this is a good option, at least I think so.  lol

    We got a small cake from our local bakery to celebrate our 1st anniversary, put our cake topper on it, and called it done.


    From what we've heard, the year old frozen cake is pretty gross anyway and you won't want to eat it. Then factor in the international shipping - and I'm not sure they'd like sending baked good internationally anyway - it's a recipe for disaster.


    here's our anniversary cake:

      We're having a baker here at home do the same cake for us a year later... We're from Norway, getting married in Fiji, so transporting cake is just out of the question :P

      The baker in Fiji is going to write down the recipe for us, so that everything is as similar as possible! We are having fresh flowers on top, but I'm considering bringing a topper, so we can replicate it (no similar flowers here, I'm afraid)?

      We are having our legal ceremony stateside and will be purchasing a small cake for that. I intend to freeze part of that cake for us to eat on our first anniversary. It probably won't be a whole tier but its better than nothing!
