Traditionally, the top tier of a wedding cake was left uncut, stored away and saved and used as the christening cake of the first child. Fruit cake can keep for years if stored and frozen correctly. Times have changed and I’m noticing fewer couples are even choosing fruit cake for their wedding cakes.
If your cake is a sponge cake of some sort and you don’t want to cut the top tier on your wedding day, you can store the top tier by freezing for up to three months. Discuss this option with your cake maker when planning and designing your cake.
Here are some fun ways of enjoying your top tier:
- Keep love alive by celebrating your first month of marriage together; with family, with friends of just you two…
- If one of you has a birthday near to your wedding date, have your cake redecorated and celebrate
- You’re back from honeymoon, before you get back to reality and normality, crack open a bottle of bubbly and a slice of your wedding cake
- If you don’t want to go in for those cheesy cake-feeding photos, discreetly ask your wedding organiser to pack up the top tier and have it delivered it to your hotel room and have your very own special midnight feast.
