Hi all icon_smile.gif
I have a wedding coming up soon . I was wondering if anyone has frozen a cake decorated in Bettercream or Pastrypride? Does it affect the texture in anyway?

Anytime either product is used the cake tastes best if eaten w/in a short just a few hours. I would think it might change the texture but can't say forsure.
You might do a test on a piece of cake you might have around.

I have been wanting to try the bettercreme for some time now. How does it affect the taste if it is not eaten within a few hours of I guess icing the cake? Is it not best to make the cake a day or more in advance? Thanks!

I purchase the liquid Bettercreme and whip it myself....

I usually whip it all up and freeze whatever I have left over for another time. I thought it thawed out fine, but you could always do a small test run.

Rich's Bettercreme handling instructions:
(For ready to use, but most info applies to the whipped liquid.)
(Shelf stable for 5 days on cake.)

Thanks for the suggestions. I will try freezing a cake allready decorated to see how it comes out.

Once on a cake it tends to airate(sp?) which give it a totally different mouth feel icon_sad.gif
Yes, you can use fzn whipped bettercreme. Just rewhip it.
Personally I just scrape out as much of the fzn liquid I think I'll need for a cake and return the rest to the fzr. Remember it is in a semi fzn state so it's not hard to remove some. I *never* defrost the entire gallon of liquid at once.
The colder it is the better it whips up. Even fz the bowl & beatericon_smile.gif
