Hi everyone,

So I am going to be making a cake for a coworker who is moving away and being that I am not a great freehand artist, I wanted to try the FBCT method...

With that, I am hoping to try doing a 'practice' FBCT before my cake is actually due (which is Feb 20) because I have never done one before.

My question is if my practice FBCT ends up looking great, I may want to save it for my cake... how long will it last in the freezer, and how should I package it until the time I will need it?? Or, being that I do not own a freezer specifically for my baking, should I just not chance the possibily of it getting an odor from the other items in my freezer?

Thank you for your help!

frozen, it should last just this side of forever. Since you mention you have other stuff in the freezer, I'd double bag it in a ziplok .... the big 2 gallon sizes should hold most FBCT's. If your's is REALLY big, after it's frozen solid, carefully wrap it in layers of saran.
