Good morning everyone,

I have a quick question. I took my cake out of the freezer this morning to begin working on it. When I unwrapped it, it had ice crystals on it. I am assuming this is not a good sign. Is this normal?

FYI, it has been in the freezer for over 1 week, wrapped in saran wrap first then covered in aluminum foil. Normally they only stay in the freezer long enough to harden then I begin my work, but this customer changed the date at the last minute, so I stuck the cake in the freezer for a week. It was (4) 9x13 cakes, so I just didn't want to throw it away.

I will re-bake if necessary. Just not sure if ice crystals is common or not. There are not alot of them, just on top and few on the sides.

Thanks, you guys rock!!!

Ice crystals are normal and not a problem.
