Hello to all,
Does anybody know if you can freeze a WASC cake and a Red Velvet cake?? if so, for how long?

I happen to have 4 family members that have b-days this month and I'm a hobby baker with a full time job(not baking) but I DO NOT want to miss mi chances to practice icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif so, I want to be able to do all the baking one day and then decorate until my heart is content icon_biggrin.gif

Ok, thank you and have a wonderful day.

I freeze cakes all of the time. If I have a small order and have left over layers I stick them in the freezer. They taste great when they come out! I have had people comment on how moist and fresh a cake tastes and it be a frozen cake. I have never left them in the freezer for more than a month, so I am not sure how long they will last in the freezer. They never last long enough around here to go bad!

Red Velvet, yes, WASC, I think so, but maybe someone else can answer that. Just make sure you cool them well before wrapping them up to freeze. I wrap them in a couple of layers of cling wrap, then aluminum foil, then into a plastic bag. Leave the wrappings on them when thawing on the countertop, so the moisture collects on the outside. Good Luck! thumbs_up.gif

You should be able to freeze just about any cake, no problem. Depending on the food coloring in the RV you may have some bleeding in the condensation as it comes to room temp, so just be aware of that when you frost(I'd let it come to room temp before frosting, then maybe blot with a paper towel, just to be safe.) Maybe some of the others here have some better advice, good luck!

Ahh thank you to all, Silver, Kerri, Jeep you're awesome!!! I will then start my baking today. The b-days are all around the 19, 23, 24 and 31...
One cake will be a casino, the other princess, an engagement box and 4th I can't decide. I'll make sure to bring them to CC to share.

I'm like in heaven, I have stuff I ordered from GSA that I haven't use and this is my chance!! icon_smile.gif
BTW, has anybody done playing cards (casino theme) with the cutters by Marion Frost?? http://www.globalsugarart.com/product.php?id=23873&name=Cards%20Patchwork%20Cutter%20Set how in the world do you do the different colors??

I think the card cake looks like it gets embossed with the cutters, and then you probaly color with petal dust, or edible food pens.

I have a question if anyone has the answer. Can you freeze an already decorated fondant cake. I have frozen decorated buttercream. But, have never frozen decorated fondant cakes....

I also have refrigerated already decorated buttercream with no problem. But, left a fondant decorated cake in my fridge overnight and it got so soft and stickey that some of the fondant actually started to drip down the side of the cake...

and yet I see Buddy on cake boss put fondant cakes in the fridge all the time. And I have a commercial FRIDGE!!!!

Any comments?

I've heard here in CC that you should never freeze (or put in the fridge) a cake with fondant because when you take it out it will form condensation and will melt like yours did.
