Please please help if you can!!!!
You can take lots of photos. Unfortunately, the cake will eventually rot under the icing.
You could make a cake dummy replica of your cake and keep that one.
As was mentioned there is no way to keep it forever...it will eventually rot & decay....if you have room in your freezer that may work to some degree but the then the icing colors may bleed etc.
Take lots ot pics from every angle, & closeups, etc. That'll be better than actually trying to keep the cake itself.
Pictures Pictures Pictures. I kept of my SIL's wedding cake in the Freezer (forgot it actually) 4 years later the red accents had turned sort of pinkish in a pinkish pool or icing. So just take pictures. And share.
There is no way to save the cake, and even a dummy cake isn't going to last forever. If you take a picture, you can enlarge it to an 8X10 or bigger and display it with your ribbons. You will get as much enjoyment out of it as keeping the actual cake. BTW, Congrats!!
