So I have frozen two cakes they are simple yellow cakes. i was just wondering if I can fill and ice the cake with either ganache or buttercream while still frozen or if I have to let them thaw first??????? what about sleeve fillings???

No idea if its right or wrong to fill while frozen. I always let mine thaw first. i dont know what a sleeve filling is so hopefully some one else can help with that

I always fill mine frozen, and crumb coat frozen too. Then I let them thaw until the crumb coat crusts, and give the filling a chance to settle (making sure there are no bulges) then I frost. Never had a problem.

Agree. The cake will settle as it thaws.

When you fill a frozen cake - do you torte before freezing? I tried that and the 2 pieces of the layers froze together and I had to wait for them to defrost to get them apart.

I do torte before freezing, because it is difficult to cut through the frozen cake. I wrap each layer separately with cling wrap so that they will not stick, and place each one on a cardboard so that they stay flat.
