I'm making a buttercream frosted wedding cake top as a gift for a friends wedding in August to be eaten on their one year anniversary. Will the cake and frosting still be edible if frozen?

Melissa, the cake and icing will be wonderful if the cake is stored and frozen properly. Instruct the bride and groom to wrap the top tier tightly in plastic wrap (any decorations will suffer, but this is necessary to preserve the taste for a whole year), and to put the wrapped tier in an airtight plastic container to freeze. The sooner they get it into the freezer, the fresher it will taste!
