Hello! I am doing a very small wedding cake soon. They want to freeze the top layer (6 inch). Do I need to do anything special when I am constructing the cake? It is only 2 layers (bottom in 10 inch and top is 6 inch). Thanks so much! Michele

No, you don't need to do anything special when making/building/decorating the cake.

What they need to do in order to still have yummy cake a year later is:

Freeze the cake (in it's box, or, even better, a plastic-ware container).
Wrap frozen cake box in 2 layers of plastic wrap, then in 2 layers of heavy foil.
Make sure it stays frozen the entire time.
If, the freezer goes out, they need to go ahead and thaw and eat the cake, once it thaws, it cannot be refrozen and still taste good.

Thanks, so I don't need to wrapped the cake board in anything special to keep it from getting soggy? Thanks again for the advice. I appreciate it?
