I made this cake for Saturday night, then find out due to lack of communication that the party is NEXT Saturday. The hands are 1/2 fondanth/gumpaste, real gummy worms, everything else BC. I took the skeleton off and put the cake in the freezer cause I don't know what else to do, there's no way I have time to redo the cake. The customer knows it's in the freezer and it may not 'make it'. Any tips for thawing this thing to try & save the decorations? Would it be best to just put it out at room temp with fans all around, or how would it handle just going from the freezer to the refridgerator? Any help at all is appreciated-thanks in advance!!!
Wow! That cake looks awesome! I love the whole concept! Too bad about the mix up! I *think* if you take it out and have fans on it to dry condensation that it will most likely be okay.
Did you make the skeleton? It's so realistic!
I am sorry there was a miscommunication about the date of the cake, I have never had anything like this happen but I think it should be o.k, the only thing I worry about is the hands. Hope everything works out for you, you did a good job.
Oh - what a shame! That's an awesome cake and so much time went into it. I hope it was the customers stuff up and not yours and you are getting paid regardless!
I think I read on another thread just recently someone put a zebra stripe cake in the freezer and the black bled into the white. I will try and find the thread!
Here it is
Dont know what to do now it's already in the freezer. Good luck - I hope you can salvage it!
That is an awesome cake! I think the fans or the fridge would work fine. The only thing I would be concerned about would be the hands.
I will say that I had frozen fondant covered cakes, uncovered, in the deep freezer. Then, stuck them in a corrugated(for traveling purposes) box...traveled for several hours. Upon arrival, placed them in the refrigerator overnight. There was no condensation, no sliding,cracking fondant....
with the fans, moisture did appear but the fans made sure it didn't stay around too long though.
