Some traditions never die, no matter how old they are or how unused, for example, the tradition of freezing the top layer of the wedding cake. There are so many opinions about this subject, and depending upon who you ask, is either a must do or a forget about it. Speaking from personal experience, I enjoyed the top layer of my wedding cake on my one year anniversary. The cake tasted fabulous on my wedding day and it tasted fabulous a year later. When packaged correctly, you get to enjoy the memories of the day, one year later.
Here are some suggestions for freezing wedding cakes:
1. Wrap entire cake layer in a generous amount of plastic wrap, and then wrap with several layers of aluminum foil, two or three sheets should do. Make sure the cake sits on a covered cake board, so that you don’t get the stale cardboard taste.
2. Place wrapped cake in sealable baggy.
3. Secure wrapped and sealed cake in a airtight storage container, to protect from getting smashed or destroyed in the freezer.
It is important to freeze cake as soon as possible, so don’t wait until after your honeymoon. Before the reception, decide who will be in charge of packaging the portion of the cake you choose to freeze to make sure it is taken care of, if not the same day, at least the next day. When you choose to have a wedding planner or coordinator for your day, this task or detail is something you don’t have to concern yourself with because we take care of it for you; amongst the many other details.
