Long story short.... after a mix up as to which Tuesday this cake was supposed to be made (they made the mistake, not me), I now have a fully decorated cake that I just spent all day working on and it's not needed until next Tuesday.

It's all buttercream frosting and bavarian cream filling. Can I freeze the thing until next week? I'm so frustrated right now icon_mad.gif

Does the cake need to be wrapped in a special way? Right now it's in a standard cake box (with the cellophane window on top), and I had put seran wrap around it.

wrap that box with several layers of plastic wrap, (then maybe foil). put all that into a large unscented plain garbage bag, suck out the air with a straw and tie a knot in the end.

freeze away!

it will be fine as long as there is no airbrushing on it....when buttercream cakes thaw they tend to get condensation on them...not a prob, unless they have airbrushing on them
