Can I freeze already decorated buttercream and fondant cake tiers to thaw, stack, and deliver later. Need to do one for a friend, and I won't be here to bake and decorate, but I could have someone put out to thaw and then deliver and assemble when I get back in town.
Will they sweat and get sticky and would it make any of the colors bleed. Such as black fondant decorations on a white background.
I dont want to do this if it wouldnt be good quality. But, I have never frozen any cakes after decorating them.
And I need some opinions on this
Bump! I have the same exact question hope we get some great CC advice soon.
I can tell you that you absolutely can freeze a cake that is iced in buttercream and covered in fondant without any degradation of quality.
I do not know, however, if heavily-colored fondant will bleed onto lighter fondant while the cake is returning to room temperature. If you keep a fan blowing on the cake as it thaws, evaporation will be whisked away fairly immediately, so in theory, it should be fine. I personally have not thawed a cake with heavily-colored fondant on lighter fondant myself.
