Why You Should Eat the Top of Your Wedding Cake the Month After Your Wedding


Should you keep the top of your wedding cake until your first wedding anniversary? My opinion is a resounding, “No!” Do you want to enjoy the cake or have it taste like cardboard? The cake tastes great if you start eating it piece by piece after you get back from the honeymoon.


The top of our wedding cake stood grand at our wedding, and then the reception hall boxed it up, and we put it in my apartment freezer, so that when we came back from Hawaii and I had to pack up my apartment, we started eating the cake to sweeten the deal.

It took us a month to eat the cake–and we finished it just as I had to be out of the apartment. Eating the cake early made us feel sneaky, and it was FUN! Just do it.

Hello Friends, A curious, kind, practical, and energetic writer, wife, mother, and teacher is one way to describe me. I enjoy thinking about transitions--in schools, churches, families, relationships, and even countries. I'm passionate about learning, and I love working with people. Stop by often to see which kind of transition I'm thinking about, and I would appreciate hearing your thoughts. Peace! ~Mary Hope
