I have a wedding cake for a friend this Saturday. Since caking is not my full time job, and I have the day off today, I decided to bake all the layers. I want to be able to torte, fill and crumb coat Thursday night, and then finish Friday night for an early Sat. delivery. Do I have to freeze the cakes, or can I just refrigerate them until Thursday?

Thanks!

I would freeze them. Freezing makes them more moist, but putting them in the fridge makes them dry out.

Okay...thank you for the quick reply. This leads me to a few more questions though, as I have never frozen my cakes before. How long do they need to thaw? Should they be left wrapped while thawing?

Thanks again, I appreciate the help.

Yes you let them thaw wrapped. It doesn't really take that long for the cake to thaw, usually about an hour in the counter.
