If I freeze my baked cakes can I frost while frozen? If I make smbc in advance do I refrigerate until I frost? How do I get it to spreadable consistency after being chilled. Thanks for any help! icon_redface.gif

I wouldn't frost until they are completely thawed. As they thaw they tend to have condensation. If they are already frosted, that condensation is trapped under the frosting and the cake become soogy and mooshy. Yuck!

It is not recommended fzn cakes be frosted. Way too many things can happen. Very cold, yes, right out of the fzr no. Let it defrost about 1/2 depending on the size of the layer. (A 16" takes 1-2 hrs)

if you refridgerate smbc you need to bring it back to room temp and then beat the heck out of it again until it looks creamy and smooth.

If you frost the cake while it is frozen, the frosting can crack when ithe cake thaws (it expands as it thaws).

It's easier to use SMBC while soft to get it ultra smooth, then you can refrigerate it, I wouldn't recommend freezing it though
