    The caterers leave last ,but tradition is that the married couple keep the top tier of the cake for a year for luck

    Given what’s happened to marriages in the last 5 years or so in the U.S., one wonders if they are keeping the part of the cake for the next wedding.

    Tradition is that the top tier of the cake is for the first Christening

    You’ll be happy to know that divorce is down significantly in the past twenty years, having reached its peak in the early 80s.

    The tradition I learned is that the top of the cake is to be saved by the couple and eaten on the first anniversary. We did eat ours on our first anniversary, and it was surprisingly good. Don’t know if they did this before the days of freezers.

    Yes, I suspect the advent of the freezer really helped this tradition. We kept ours too (or at least, my mom took it, wrapped it carefully and kept it in her freezer for us). It was still delicilous after a year!

    In these parts, the top tier is unthawed and eaten at the first anniversary celebration.

    Yep, 1st anniversary here too.

    I did hear of a couple that carefully preserved theirs in the freezer, only to find out a year later that they had saved a piece of icing covered styrofoam.

    People are together – many families are really together. Marriages are down because they are expensive. Young couples want a blow out party and can not afford it. If the economy turns we will see a huge rebound.

    Still have the figures from our 1967 wedding cake. At least that’s what I think is in that foil cocoon.
