I have a sheetcake for this evening for a church dinner. Since I work full time, I baked & froze earlier this week. Since the dinner is Fri. at 6PM, and I had a centerpiece cake to do also, I took the layers out Weds night, filled, crumbcoated and loosely covered in plastic wrap. I was afraid i'd run out of time. This afternoon I'll ice it- they're going to keep it in the back & cut it up.

I've never done this before (crumbcoating frozen two days before) and now I'm second guessing myself that this was the right thing to do. It likely didn't thaw out til Thursday morning. I thought it would be better for condensation to form on the crumbcoat than on the naked cake layers? Is the cake going to be too wet? Argh!

What do you think?

I do this with almost all of my cakes and I have so many people tell me how much they love my cakes. It will all be good.

It'll be fine - I do this all the time and everyone raves about how moist they are.

Thank you all so much! You know how you start to second guess yourself? I'm famous for it!
