Saving the top layer of your wedding cake?

We've all heard the story of the couple who pulled the top layer of their wedding cake out of the freezer on their first anniversary hoping it would look like this:

but instead ended up with something more like this:

And tasted even worse! 

So, if you are planning on saving the top layer of your wedding cake, here's how to do it right: 
  • Place the cake, unwrapped,  in the freezer overnight to let the icing harden
  • In the morning, wrap it tightly with plastic wrap and then cover the plastic wrap in tin foil
  • Place the cake back in the freezer, preferably toward the back.
  • Wait one year and enjoy!
