I offered to make my cousin's bridal shower cake a few months aunt called to to set up the date, and of course, it's the day before my daughter's 1st birthday party...I'm going to be so busy prepping for the party, so my question is...
I know I can make and freeze the cakes ahead of time, but can I freeze them filled and iced, and if so, for how long?...the cake is just going to be 8" round, WASC, filled with raspberry preserves, and I was probably going to use indydebi's crisco based buttercream (I've never used it before, have read good things about it, using it this weekend for a mother's day cake)...would I be able to freeze it filled and iced, then just pull it out and let it thaw, then put the fondant accents on once it thaws?....
Thanks so much for all your help!

I've heard many people say that you shouldn't freeze an iced and filled cake.

I don't know, but here's a bump.

Sure you can. Look in my photos...I did a banquet with more than 80 cakes. I could never have done this without baking, torting, and filling ahead of time and putting everything in the freezer.

Just because you're "only" doing two cakes in one weekend does not make it any less stressful, Carolyn! I really don't like doing two cakes in one weekend because it stresses me out.

The banquet thing in only once a year, thank God. 3 days of work and 7 days of rest. icon_biggrin.gif:

If I were to freeze them I would only crumb coat them. Then when you take them out of the freezer you could do the final icing and then let it come room temp and add your fondant accents.
Cakepro I guess with 80 cakes that definitely makes you a pro!!! icon_smile.gifI know that was cheezy but I had to say it.
