Saving Your Wedding Cake?

Recommended Posts

*Sorry this is already a thread, but since the search function isnt working,I thought I'd ask anyway!*

 

I know that sometimes in a traditional wedding, couples save a piece or a tier of their wedding cake and freeze it for their 1st anniversary.

 

I'm not sure we're doing this b/c I dont think I want to deal with the hassle of bringing a cake back home. And I'm not sure how great it would taste anyway after a whole year in my freezer! sick.gif I was just wondering if any of you DW brides did this or are planning to do this.

Ya know - we actually did this! My WC sent home the top tier of our cake, and we put it in the hotel freezer. But we were leaving the next day for Hawaii.

 

So I told my dad, who was heading home to MN the next day - if he wanted to deal with lugging the cake back to the US, through customs, and 1 flight connection, he certainly could. But I wouldn't want to, and wouldn't blame him if he didn't either! But when we got home from Hawaii - our cake was in our freezer!

 

Now, I'm not 100% sure I'll eat it on our anniversary - but maybe we'll take some pictures or something!

We found our cake top (and topper) in our mini-fridge at the resort after the wedding, but were going to another hotel for a few nights. We ended up taking a bite or two before we left.

 

Many local bakers will offer an anniversary cake top for weddings because I don't think the cake/frosting is very edible after that long.

 

I think it's a great excuse to celebrate our 1st Anniversary back in Cabo. :)

The top tier made it to our hotel room, we ate some with our hands in our drunkenness, and left the rest. As Ann showed it is possible to get it home but you may not want to eat it, not sure how long cake stays cold enough to not spoil before you get it to your fridge at home :o)

I think it would be a great excuse to go back to your destination for your 1 year anniversary! Afterall the gift is paper and that's what tickets are made of!

 

We would probably forget the cake if we froze it! lol So we aren't going to try and save any.

I totally forgot that we have the top layer from our AHR cake at my in-laws'! My cake lady told me how to wrap it to keep it the best. She said people who have eaten it, said it was still good! That'll be more than I had at the AHR~ never got to finish the piece we were feeding each other, and thought we'd have a TON left~ we had none sad.gif!

I really wanted to do this but couldn't figure out how I'd get the cake home. My best friend took hers out of the fridge on their 1 yr anniv, took one bite & quickly threw the rest away. She said it was disgusting!!! I had to laugh at that!!! But then what can you expect from a year old cake. LOL

We brought a lot of our cake home...the top tier plus other tiers as well. I wrapped pieces enough for 2 in Press & Seal and then put them all in Zip Locs based on the flavor. That way we can have some cake whenever we want it and re-live it!

 

But we'll definitely be tasting our top tier for our anniversary, but it gives us a better excuse to go back to Cabo and have Deena make us another one! :)

We saved the part of our cake that was left. The kids ate most of it the next day, but we save a slice for us to share later. I can't even imagine how I would have gotten cake home.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
