How To: Freezing the Top-Tier of Your Wedding Cake
Published: April 24, 2012
Are you planning to save the top tier of your wedding cake? This tradition took root in the late 19th century when ingredients like flour and sugar were more expensive. As a result, wedding cakes often double as christening cakes, assuming a celebration of this sort would be in order a short time after the wedding. Today the tradition has morphed into saving the top tier of your wedding cake for consumption on your first anniversary. But freezing a cake for an entire year can prove tricky. Avoid eating a freezer-burned slice on your first anniversary with these no-fail tips from Nashville wedding cake pro Rebecca Schreher of Rebecca's Wedding Cakes by Design.
One more tradition to note that I expect many brides are not familiar with... the number of tiers of your wedding cake represents the size you hope your family will grow to include. The more tiers of cake the larger the family so be carefully how high your go!
