According to tradition, you freeze the top tier of your wedding cake and eat it on your one-year anniversary. (Visit weddingbee.com to see how to do it if you want to -- personally? We weren't too successful. But it was cool to see it in the fridge every day for a year!) But as much as your guests love cake, you might have some leftovers after the big day -- and you don't have to let them go to waste. In fact, you can still have your cake and (ahem) eat it too.

The Daily Meal came up with a list of things to do with those tasty tidbits. These are my favorites (and they kind of make me wish I had cake right now):

Put it in a sundae. Slice the cake into cubes and use it as your base for an ice cream sundae.

Make ice cream sandwiches. In keeping with the ice cream theme, take pieces of cake and use a cookie or round biscuit-cutter to cut them into circles. Dip them in melted chocolate and sprinkle with cookie crumbs or nuts. Bonus: You can freeze to eat later.

Use it in granola. OMG: wedding cake granola! Toast a few slices in the toaster, chop it up super fine, and sprinkle into your granola for some extra flavor and texture.

Create croutons. Cut the cake into crouton shapes and toast them or bake them until they're crunchy, then sprinkle them on top of your salad for a dash of sweetness.

Fry up some French toast. Use cake slices instead of bread! I'll bet you wouldn't even need syrup for these babies, either.

What do you think: Will you save your wedding cake?
