Does anyone know approx how long it takes for a frozen cake to thaw? One that has been completed.

It will depend on the size of the cake -- an 8" takes maybe an hour but a 16" tier can take up to 4 hrs.
To a much lesser degree what the filling is will make a difference too.

I was looking for information for 8" - 14" - Thanks

I have a Wedding cake to deliver on Saturday. The Reception is at 6 but they said I can get into the hall anytime after 11:30. I have a full day and the earlier I can deliver the better.

The filling shouldn't be a problem but because it has been so hot and humid it would ease my mind if I could drop it off frozen and be assured.

I have heard complaints Brides have made that when they went to cut into the cake it was still frozen so I didn't want that to happen.

Normally I wouldn't freeze my cake but the temp has been so high.

I would think you should be safe if you deliver around noon icon_smile.gif I can understand your concern.
If the cake is stacked, that also will slow the thawing time for the bottom tier.
