After DH and I left our wedding reception and took off on our honeymoon, my Mom took charge of the cake. She said she first froze the cake, then wrapped it up and put it in a box. It was in my mom's freezer for 6 months until christmas, after which we flew home with the cake. Ever since christmas, it has been in our freezer.
See the cake box.
The cake box took up a lot of space in our freezer. This is what our freezer looked like before taking the box out:
And this is what it looked like after removing the cake box:
These are the flowers and fruity chocolate candy DH gave me on our anniversary by the way:) The chocolate just so happens to be the same chocolate we served at our wedding open house in Los Altos (at the home of the lovely Rachel). YUM! What a nice husband I have!
Here is a step by step sequence of unwrapping the cake:
(Doesn't DH have manly hands?)
There were 5 layers of aluminum foil!
There were also 5 layers of plastic wrap. (good job Mom!)
This is us cutting the cake. Taking a self portrait is difficult sometimes..(note DH's head is cut off..whoops)
