Save a Piece or Two of your Wedding Cake to Enjoy Later
Some couples practice the tradition of saving a piece or two of their wedding cake. On their first year anniversary, they can reminisce about their wedding over a slice of the actual wedding cake.
How to Freeze Slices of Wedding Cake
Saving the wedding cake is usually done by freezing the slices. Because the cake will be frozen for a year, it is important to take care to protect the slices well against freezer burn or absorbing odors. In order to preserve the shape of the cake, put the slice or slices on a plate or pan and place in the freezer for a few hours. Take off any plastic or otherwise un-edible decorations beforehand.
Once everything is good and hard, wrap each piece of cake individually with plastic wrap. It is wise to use several layers to protect it well. Next, wrap each slice tightly with aluminum foil. Go one step further and place the wrapped pieces of wedding cake into a plastic freezer bag. Place in an area of the freezer where it won’t get bumped or damaged. To ensure no damage will occur, you can also place the freezer bag into a hard sided container if you have room in your freezer. It’s a good idea to label the bag or box to remind you the pieces are there.
Enjoy in a Year
