I am making my first wedding cake for a friend. YAY! I am going to do the border in royal icing and need to know if I can freeze the cake with the royal icing already piped on? I freeze cakes all the time with my buttercream frosting, but this is my first time working with royal icing.

Thanks! icon_biggrin.gif

Unfortunately, no. Since royal is mainly just sugar when it thaw it will melt.

Just curious....why are you using royal instead of buttercream for this cake?

That is good to know! I am using buttercream to frost the whole cake. I was just going to use the royal frosting to pipe a dot border around all the layers. Any suggestions?
