I'm working on a cake for my niece B-day party on Sat. I baked filled and iced last night. I got a call that the party is postponed until next Sat because she is sick. Can I freeze the cake already iced or should I give it away and start again next week?

Yes, you can freeze the cake. Stick it in the freezer until it is frozen solid, then wrap in plastic wrap and then in aluminum foil. Unwrap before defrosting. OR place in an airtight container and remove from container before defrosting.

That is a relief. Next question. It is already stacked with dowel rods. Do I need to unstack before freezing?

If you have room for it as is go ahead and wrap it well. It will take longer to defrost but all you need do is remove it the night before you need it. Remember to unwrap before thawing icon_smile.gif

I put the cake in the freezer Friday night and when I pulled it out Sat to wrap it the icing has spots. I started with light purple icing and used Wilton purple spray on the tops and part way down the side. The spots are in the areas the spray touched.

So what are my options to get ride of the spots? Way to many to just cover up with decorations. Can I ice over it or do I need to scrape it and start again? TIA
