I have make some carrot cake and have frozen it ready to be iced for a party on Saturday, should I remove it from its cling film wrapping whilst it is defrosting?
What is the best was to defrost it, in the fridge or on the kitchen side?
Hi, you have to defrost it while its wraped and in the fridge.
Thanks for the speedy reply! Would over night would be long enough?
I throw it on the counter and it thaws while still wrapped. Cakes take less than an hour to thaw, depending on size (small cakes take about 15-20 minutes).
Look at it this way ... when you remove ANY food from the freezer to thaw, do you unwrap it before it thaws? Or do you leave the bread, the hamburger, the chicken wrapped during the thawing process.
Cake is no different.
If you are planning to decorate it on Friday, then Thursday night would be fine.
Thank you both x
