I am making my dad's 60th birthday cake for his party night of 8 august and will be away for a week until midday that same day.

I want to make a topsy turvy cake. I was wondering if I could bake, torte and cover with ganache and freeze. Then get my sister to take it out of the freezer the night before.

Could I carve to the topsy turvy shape all ready to stack and decorate?
does anyone have any tips otherwise I will go with buttercream which is not as tasty and hope for the best.

Yes, you can completely tort, fill, ganache and freeze a cake. Thaw completely wrapped in the fridge overnight and take out to come to room temp before covering with fondant (if fillings are non-perishable).

Thanks Toptier!

I have another question, I made the cakes last night (tuesday) all ready to cover etc today but something has come up and I cannot get back to the cakes until friday night.

I have put them in the freezer - Can I defrost friday morning, carve, torte, fill, ganache and refreeze on Friday night. Then get my sister to defrost in the fridge the night before I need to complete the decorating in 2 weeks time.

I know people freeze cakes when making and friends who freeze left over decorated cakes so I am wondering if you can freeze-defrost-freeze a cake.
