Well, our first anniversary is here, and we ate some of the top layer this evening. I have to say, it still tasted pretty darn good! It was just a little dry, but not bad at all, and it still tasted pretty much exactly the same as I remember it tasting a year ago. It kept better than I thought it would, to be honest!

Happy Anniversary Bottlecaps!     Glad your cake was enjoyable and I hope you enjoyed the memories too.   

We also ate our cake on our first anniversary and it was great.  Before I froze it I scrapped off the frosting.  After I thawed it out I refrosted and it seemed just as fresh as it had at our wedding.

Happy anniversary! Mine is in a couple of weeks. We used a local baker so we are going to have her make a fresh cake for us. Can't wait ...I love cake :)

The top layer of our cake is residing in our freezer currently, awaiting consumption on August 30, 2015. :) I'm hoping it still tastes good!

Did it?  :D

My ex-husband and I attempted to save ours, but we ran out of freezer space, even after being gifted a gigantic chest freezer.  You see, the companion gift to the chest freezer was a whole, butchered cow.  My ex's godparents were cattle ranchers.  After the cow was butchered, wrapped and stored, we didn't have room for anything else.  As an aside, I didn't eat beef for a very long time after our first year of marriage, since we ate so much of it, as we were broke newlyweds and couldn't justify buying any other meat since we had so much beef already in the freezer.  On the other hand, it was very nice, as very broke newlyweds, to not have to worry about the most expensive part of the food budget in a meat eating household.

BF stated that he and his late wife attempted to save their as well, but his psychotic brother-in-law (literally, he's currently confined to a mental hospital for the rest of his life after being adjudicated "not guilty by reason of mental illness" many years ago) stole the cake. 

On a funny note, the whole reason I mentioned this thread to him was because of the fruitcake comments, particularly the one about being able to survive a nuclear war.  He interrupted me to tell me what happened to the top tier of his cake before I got to it, so after he told me that part, I got back to the point, as he really, really, really loves fruitcake.  When I told him that traditionally wedding cake was fruitcake he got this certain look on his face that makes me certain that if I wind up marrying this man, my next wedding cake will be "traditional".  Oh, boy.

You can have different flavours in different tiers. Perfectly fine for one to be fruitcake and the other tiers different flavours.

You're not condemned to fruitcake hell.  ;)

Here you don't keep the cake for your 1st anniversary, rather for the christening of your first child. My brother's cake was 8 years old. We ate it and it was delicious. It was a fruit cake though. Those suckers are hardy.

My exH and I tried. Someone else packaged it, a couple of days later I wrapped that packaging in foil, and it went in the freezer. However, I didn't realize that the fresh flowers that had decorated it had been left on. We thawed it without unwrapping it. By that time, it was pretty much a disgusting, inedible mess.

I haven't the faintest idea what happened to our top tier - it wasn't a huge cake since we had a small wedding, so I assume it was cut with the bottom and middle tiers to be served to our guests.  I did save my bouquet though.

Traditional Wedding cake has a lot in common with Christmas Pudding. This Christmas Pud was still god after 46 years...

We didn't.  We had three tiers that were each a different flavor.  The bottom was red, the middle was chocolate and the top was white.  There is always someone that wants white.  We honeymooned at home and ate wedding leftovers including the cake.
