I just want to freeze it for 3 days. The cake has pudding in the filling. I want to carve it but the pudding is wat to slippery. I have another cake so it needs to go in the freezer for 3 days until I am ready for it. Is this ok or will it get ice crystals or become weird? THanks so much.

It will be fine in the freezer.

I took the cake out after 3 days. The filimng looked ok, but it had absorbed into the cake by about 50%. and the cake was soggy. I am sure it would have tasted great, but I did not feal like it so I scraped it out and did biutter cream.

I've had success with freezing cakes with pudding in the middle as long as the pudding didn't contain cornstarch. Cornstarch makes it lumpy.

It was snack packs non-refrigerated, pre-made pudding.

I am sorry I meant to say I did not feel like risking it... not that I did not feel like it.. lol - I need some sleep. I had 3 BIG cakes this week and today was the last...

The cake was for a friend. She wanted pudding , but after I called she said it was ok to change it.
Also I forgot to say I was carving the cake into a football. This I am sure did not help the situation. I was going to use the football pan at first but when it did not work I had to carve. I would have never said ok to pudding had I known I was going to have to carve something.

Thanks for the help.
I guess it sounds like I could have just left it. I might have if I did not have to carve as well. It survived the carving, but all that moving around probably pressed the pudding into the cake.
