That about sums up my question . I am making a cake and we will be gone for a week. Will it keep in the freezer?
Just a plain ole buttercream iced cake? Shouldn't be a probably wrapped properly. Fondant covered MAY be a different story. I'll leave that to the fondant pros. Good luck!
I did it with a bc cake. Put in cake box, wrap tightly with plastic and froze for 2 weeks. Let it thaw on countertop still wrapped and it was perfect. Couldn't even taste that it had been frozen.
I have also done this in the past....
Actually, at present, I have a Spiderman sheet cake and 2doz cupcakes in my freezer back home, waiting for delivery next week.
I am at present in Ireland on holiday and the customer was desperate for someone to bake her a birthday cake for her 3yr old.
Explained to her that this was the only way she could get it done and she was quite happy.
I have not had any bad reports about cakes that I have left in the deepfreeze all ready decorated.
I was just about to post a question about this! Anyway, I just froze a BC decorated cake. I froze it for a few hours, then wrapped it and took the wrap off before thawing.
I have never had any issues when I've done this in the past, but for some reason this time, it seemed to change the BC taste, color, consistency... It was a mountain cake and the perfect color combo bled and ran as it thawed and the black/grey turned purple-ish color. I managed to get it back to a respectable hue, but the perfect color combo I had created is gone....
Any ideas why ?
Thanks for the responses!
