At my wedding cake tasting with couples, I still ask question if they want keep the top tier to freeze for first anniversary. Majority of my couples still say yes, surprisingly . Freezing the top tier top tier is suppose to be good luck for the couple. Another traditional reason for freezing the top tier, is that it gives the couple a way to reliving their wedding day by eating piece wedding cake on first year anniversary.
Why have year old cake on your first anniversary together? More than likely, the cake will be thrown away because have not desire eat all cake. Which is a waste of money. Here is an alternative solution. Buy your favorite dessert while looking at your wedding picture and or video of your wedding.
Having a white cake is wedding tradition due to the bride is usually in white which symbolize purity and so the wedding cake matches the bride. Most bride still wear white wedding dress but wedding cakes does not have to be. There are so many cake flavors and colors that bride can choose from now.
Each tier can be a different cake flavor such as carrot, chocolate, or lemon. I have seen chocolate wedding cakes. In this modern time you can choose what you want and colors you choice.
You are having a wedding and you cannot have a wedding without a wedding cake. Well, not necessarily. Believe it or not, some people do not like cake. Most of the time it has to do with the thick and sweet frosting on most wedding cake people have tasted in past.
I tell brides and grooms they can have any desserts or cake they want. In this day and time, people opt for cupcakes. Having all pies have been popular instead of wedding cake. Dessert table with your favorite desserts are also another way to go. Donuts in shape of cake has been trending. Naked cakes are on a resurgent. There is a semi naked cake where couple can have some frosting on outside.
Now should you ignore these 3 wedding cake traditions. No! If you do not want to freeze the top tier of your wedding cake, don’t. It’s all up to you on what you want to do.
