Carisa - I assume you are doing fruit cake? If so, as long as it has alcohol in it, you don't need to do anything else to it for it to keep for a year. The alcohol will preserve it and in fact the cake will mature and get better. Just make sure they keep it wrapped properly and in an airtight tin.
Well 2 things Carisa
If it is all bc icing, if wrapped well, it will keep for a year. If it is bc & fondant covered, it will keep, but when removed from the freezer, fondant will be soft. If they unwrap, place in a cardboard box lined with paper towels, and leave it be, the box & towels will absorb the excess moisture. If left to stand, the fondant will eventually dry out & become firm again. But they must not touch it, or it will leave marks. Any fondant/gumpaste embellishments tho, should be taken off before freezing. Fear they will not hold up as well when unthawed. A couple I did a small keeper cake for did this, and they said it was just as yummy as the original.
Hope this helps. :o)
I am assuming you are talking about the top tier of the cake? Usually it is the one they save for their first anniversary. I never charge for the top tier of cake it is my gift to the couple. A cake I did in San Antonio last March the bride sent me a message last week... they had wrapped it tight in plastic then in foil and put it in the freezer for the year. She said it was fantastic!
OK Carisa - as it's not fruit cake, then I agree with everything else said here. No need for alcohol as you will be freezing it. June has it spot on!
